With special guests! It’s 1975, and the James Dean fan club in the small town of McCarthy, TX, is planning a member reunion. An odd assortment of women arrive at the meeting in the local five-and-dime, and director Robert Altman flashes back, showing them as young James Dean fans, and then jumps forward to present day to reveal the ravages of time and lost innocence. Among the attendees are Mona (Sandy Dennis), a disturbed woman who claims her son is James Dean’s child; Sissy (Cher), a wisecracking waitress; Joanne (Karen Black), who holds a shocking secret; Stella Mae (Kathy Bates), the wife of a rich petroleum executive; Edna Louise (Marta Heflin), a shy, withdrawn woman with numerous children; Juanita (Sudie Bond), the manager of the five-and-dime store; and Joe Qualley (Mark Patton), a young man who likes to dress up in women’s clothing.
