OK, here’s the pitch: take a popular Midwestern radio show, add a few big Hollywood stars, throw in edgy director Robert Altman, and what do you have? “Pure screen gold”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0420087/. Or something.
Yeah, they lost me at “radio show” too. I can see the appeal of Garrison Keillor, consummate storyteller, but the rest of it sounds like an odd fit. Of course, it’s been well-received at the Berlin Film Festival, so I may end up seeing it (and loving it) when it comes to town.
