A Prairie Home Companion

Legendary director Robert Altman (M*A*S*H*, Nashville, The Player, Short Cuts) assembles another jaw-dropping ensemble cast (let's see ... Woody Harrelson, Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Kline, Lindsay Lohan, Virginia Madsen, John C. Reilly, Meryl Streep and Lilly Tomlin) to interpret Garrison Keillor's folksy radio show. Rather than a literal translation, the film looks at the backstage antics behind the "final broadcast" of Keillor's "fictional" radio show. Funny, genial and full-to-bursting with great little character moments, Altman and Keillor have assembled an oddly likable, resolutely old-fashioned showbiz comedy. 105 minutes PG-13.
