Each Saturday during October 2015, the Kansas City Public Library will screen films that highlight the unusual experiences of people in wondrous worlds that resemble and dissemble reality.
Alice Tate (Mia Farrow) is an upper-class New York housewife who spends her days shopping, primping, and gossiping. After cheating on her wealthy husband with a handsome jazz musician, her gnawing guilt manifests itself in a backache. She is referred to a mysterious herbalist who gives her a series of ancient herbs that remove her inhibitions and bestow upon her strange powers. Directed by Woody Allen.
