Hello Beautiful!

Act 1: Chicago's Cinema

Edward talks with Jean de St. Aubin about one of Chicago's premier cinematic venues: the Gene Siskel Film Center. The film center is currently hosting the 10th Annual European Union Film Festival, but also plays host to a wealth of independent and experimental films from Chicago and the world. Then, we pay homage to Chicagoan Jennifer Hudson and he her powerful voice in the song “And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going” from the soundtrack of Dreamgirls. Hudson won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar last weekend for the role of Effie in the film.
