C*R*A*S*H

Director Robert Altman takes Short Cuts from the lives of 23 unfaithful and guilt-ridden Los Angelenos, and stitches them together in a 3 hour tapestry that stands as one of the most influential films of the 1990s. How do the stories of hit-and-run driver Lily Tomlin, grieving mother Andie MacDowell, absentee father Jack Lemmon, phone sex operator Jennifer Jason Leigh, pantsless painter Julianne Moore, and bad cop Tim Robbins intersect? Justin, Jakob, and Stuart guide you through the celebrity gridlock when you become a Patron this November.

Overview
Many loosely connected characters cross paths in this film, based on the stories of Raymond Carver. Waitress Doreen Piggot accidentally runs into a boy with her car. Soon after walking away, the child lapses into a coma. While at the hospital, the boy's grandfather tells his son, Howard, about his past affairs. Meanwhile, a baker starts harassing the family when they fail to pick up the boy's birthday cake.
