Just got back from seeing A Prairie Home Companion.  I had wanted to see Cars, but I was outvoted -- and I'm glad I was, because A Prairie Home Companion was a great little movie.  You forget how good Robert Altman is -- he's a legend, blah blah blah.  And Garrison Keillor too -- he still does the radio show every week, so you get used to it.  But this movie rocks, reminding you why you like them!  And the cast is great too!

Fun Fact:  this movie is set in the same fictional universe as Keillor's novel WLT...

Lindsay is very good as a sullen teen! And later, she has to fake her way thru "Frankie and Johnny"...

I want to see Cars too! :) I wasn't sure what Prairie was about so I didn't know if I would want to see it...

Have you ever listened to the radio show "A Prarie Home Companion"? It's like the show, but not really...

It's about a radio variety show on a small station in St. Paul MN that has somehow survived to today. But now the station has been bought and the show is ending and the movie is basicly all the things that happen behind-the-scenes on the last show...
