A Natural Step
December 29, 2009 |
Do you not feel a film about Lake Wobegon characters would detract from the pictures we as listeners hold for them in our imaginations? Mr. Altman's film worked well as a visualization of your radio personas, but I cannot imagine any actor giving the Lake Wobegon characters so true a portrayal.
I'd love to see Lake Wobegon portrayed in a movie. I am curious to know what they look like and what they talk about. Fiction is a bold venture into the dark and this seems to me to be a natural step. But I intend to write the screenplay.
