Thanks to Picturehouse Films we have just added 12 new looks at the upcoming musical-comedy A Prairie Home Companion, which stars Garrison Keillor, Lyle Lovett, Meryl Streep, Lindsay Lohan, Maya Rudolph, Lily Tomlin, Woody Harrelson, John C. Reilly, Kevin Kline, Virginia Madsen and Tommy Lee Jones and these pics are giving you looks at just about everyone.
The film takes a look at what goes on backstage at one of America’s most celebrated radio shows, where singing cowboys Dusty (Waits) and Lefty (Lovett), a country music siren (Streep), and a host of others hold court, but if you want an official synopsis check it out below:
Director Robert Altman and writer Garrison Keillor join forces with an all-star cast to create a comic backstage fable, A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION, about a fictitious radio variety show that has managed to survive in the age of television. Meryl Streep and Lily Tomlin star as the Johnson Sisters, Yolanda and Rhonda, a country duet act that has survived the county-fair circuit, and Lindsay Lohan plays Meryl’s daughter, Lola, who gets her big chance to sing on the show and then forgets the words. Kevin Kline is Guy Noir, a private eye down on his luck who works as a backstage doorkeeper, and Woody Harrelson and John C. Reilly are Dusty and Lefty, the Old Trailhands, a singing cowboy act. Add Virginia Madsen as an angel and Tommy Lee Jones as the Axeman and Maya Rudolph as a pregnant stagehand and Keillor in the role of hangdog emcee, and you have a playful story set on a rainy Saturday night in St. Paul, Minnesota, where fans file into the Fitzgerald Theater to see A Prairie Home Companion, a staple of radio station WLT, not knowing that WLT has been sold to a Texas conglomerate and that tonight’s show will be the last.
A Prairie Home Companion is currently eyeing a June 2006 release, but an official date has not yet been announced. To check out the pics click here or on the teaser pic above.
