This is a movie that we saw a year ago at the Madison Film Festival. Doug Pray, the filmmaker grew up here in Madison and spoke before the film was shown. John and I and our friend Steve saw it together and all enjoyed it a lot. I noticed that the Netflix reviews were rather whiny about this film. Maybe our enjoyment was because we had all worked in either advertising or TV and were of an age to remember the advertising campaigns. I recommend it. I watched it again on my computer as I worked. I got it from Netflix.
