Prairie Home Companion

Claudia took the day off so we decided to go to a movie. Its not raining but with a breeze off Lake Superior its darned cool.

It was between two cartoons, Over the Hedges and Cars and Garrison Keillor’s movie. Our Minnesota roots won out. Having been to four of his shows we just had to see how would shoot the film in the Old Fitzgerald Theater. It was very much in the spirit of GK’s radio show and the Robert Altman movies I’ve seen. It got a positive 77% rating on my favorite movie rating website Rotten Tomatos, a tad higher than that of either animated movie.
