A Prairie Home Companion

9 Jun, 2006

Reilly plays Lefty, a singing cowboy, in this musical drama directed by Robert Altman. America’s most celebrated radio show broadcasts its last program as their regular performers hold court in the studio. Co-starring Lily Tomlin, Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Lindsay Lohan and Woody Harrelson.
