Martin Scorsese’s Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Classic Film Night

In Martin Scorsese’s Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore Alice, a thirty-five year old housewife and mother, is suddenly widowed. With few job skills except that as a singer, Alice, along with her bratty eleven year old son Tommy, decides to move from their current home in Socorro, New Mexico to her home town of Monterrey, California, the only place she has ever felt happy.

Alice’s plans go awry and she is forced to take a waitressing job at Mel and Ruby’s Diner in Tuscon, Arizona working with Mel, the establishment’s gruff owner/short order cook, and her fellow waitresses. Alice also falls into old habits, namely relying on men to make her feel fulfilled, specifically the much younger Ben, and farmer David. Those relationships may also provide her with a better perspective on her life and her bad choice of Donald as a husband.
