This afternoon I viewed the movie A Prairie Home Companion, for the second time, knowing I would be able to look at more details of the film. This time was magic - - I saw myself! Granted, the camera was not doing a close-up of me, but I saw not only my aqua sweater, but my face. A few seconds later, I saw myself clapping. This was so much fun!
Once again, I really enjoyed the film! I caught lines and actions that I missed at the first viewing. It was interesting listening to a different audience - just like when our choir sings the same numbers for two different services at church. Even when we sing them identically, one audience will erupt in applause at the completion of a number, the other sits like "stones." At the completion of yesterday's viewing, most of the audience applauded. This afternoon's crowd laughed at many more jokes and comments, but did not clap at the conclusion. Go figure.
The reviews I have read have been positive. They are from around the country - not just the prejudiced Minnesotans. :-)
