Kansas City

Kansas City

Anything could happen here. One night it did. In 1934 Kansas City, the mob runs the dice games, prostitutes, cops and politicians. When a small time hood (Dermot Mulroney) gets the bright idea to knock over a buddy of the city's top gangster, a club owner named Seldom Seen (Harry Belafonte), he crosses the wrong man and finds himself in deeper trouble than he could ever imagine. Now, it's up to Blondie O'Hara (Jennifer Jason Leigh), his tough-talking girlfriend, to come to his rescue. Her solution? Kidnap a wealthy presidential advisor's wife (Miranda Richardson) and swap her for her boyfriend. Kidnapping, murder and mayhem are the perfect backdrop for some of the most impressive, star-studded cinematic jazz sessions ever shown on screen.
  • Rated R for language, and for some violence and drug use
