I agree with every wonderful thing that has been said about this movie. I've seen it three times (so far) and each time it's like going home. An omission, in my opinion, in these reviews, is the fact that no one mentioned the performance by Maya Rudolph who plays Molly in the movie. I believe she gave an award-winning performance. I have some experience in drama etc. and realize how difficult it is to give a "restrained" performance. Her coup in this role was not what she said and did, but what she didn't say or do. I had never heard of her until PHC (I don't get out much!!)but am now eager to see her in any role. I understand that she was really pregnant during the filming. Kudos, Maya, on you baby and your marvelous performance.

The Synopsis for A Prairie Home Companion (2006) 1080p
A final live variety show broadcast via radio becomes a metaphor for the natural order of life. A concept and script by Garrison Keilor uses every natural and technical element of working with a tight and close ensemble producing a weekly show to sooth us and guide us through the natural but difficult transitions of aging, becoming less relevant and then dying as new, young life develops and strengthens during our final "performances." This is a rare film for it's remarkable cast and crew and one wonders how the great Robert Altman was able to gather them all at the same place and time to shoot this film.

I like APHC (except the music) but was bored to death by this movie. You would think the movie would be at least be as good as the weekly show. Not so, not so. Guy Noir was flat and lifeless (and I like Kevin Klein), the jokes were slow and poorly timed, there were no serials, the letters segment was extremely short, there was no "sermon". Did it take more than five minutes to write the plot? I was expecting the usual APHC bits and got nothing but old, old, old country music.
If you like old country music you will love this movie. If you are expecting a shining example of the weekly show, you will be disappointed.
The movie opens with a view of rural Minnesota, accompanied by 1950'sradio...music, farm report, commodity prices, etc. It quickly moves toMickey's Diner, an establishment located just a few blocks from theFitzgerald Theater in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. There we see GuyNoir, whose job is managing security for the "A Prairie Home Companion"radio program. Soon we are in the theater, preparing for the liveperformance of the radio program. Virtually all the remainder of themovie happens in the Fitzgerald.
Note: I have attended two APHC performances in the Fitzgerald, and haveeaten in Mickey's Diner. The exteriors in the movie are all real, andthe stage, the sets and auditorium shots of the Fitzgerald are likewisegenuine. Even a brief shot of a church near the theater, toward the endof the movie, is genuine. You can see some photos at PHCFan.com. Thestage action in the movie is just like it happens in real life. Whetherthe dressing-room scenes and GK's disregard for deadlines are similarto real-life, I don't know.
During much of the movie we are puzzled by a mysterious woman in whitewho has certainly caught Guy Noir's eye...her garments are so tight hecan "read the embroidery on her panties." She walks calmly around thestage and through the set during the show itself. We learn her identityin the second half of the movie.
The real-life Sue Scott plays a hairdresser in the movie, a speakingrole. Even if you don't recognize her face you will recognize hervoice. All the other regulars seem to play themselves.
The movie audience really enjoyed the movie. We laughed heartily at thejokes, and applauded at the end. It is a feel-good movie, a must-seefor fans of the weekly radio program.
