A movie about radio!

The last few years' offerings out of Hollywood have been remarkably mediocre and narcissistic, but this is definitely one movie I will try and see!

A Prairie Home Companion ... looks at the events backstage at the final broadcast of an old-fashioned radio show. The ensemble cast includes Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Tommy Lee Jones, Lily Tomlin, Woody Harrelson, Lindsay Lohan and Garrison Keillor.

Streep commented that "...the world that Garrison Keillor creates ...locates a place in our childhood, in Americans' childhood. We grew up listening to the radio in a more innocent time."
