Robert Altman's new film, fresh from screenings at the Berlin and SXSW film fests, is gearing up for a summer release. The folks at Picturehouse sent over a link to the film's trailer, so here it is (available now on AOL). We caught the film in Berlin, and in the indieWIRE Dispatch published from the fest, co-star Meryl Streep said during a press conference, "I feel really proud of the movie and I think its properly subversive and its very human," adding that the movie, about the end of Garrison Keillor long-running radio variety show, "I think its properly subversive and very human. It relies on humor and music to communicate what's being lost...For me it was really great to locate something true about America, something that cuts across all levels of sophistication and humanity, about who we are as Americans, and that's why I loved being in it."
