David Lynch’s most unexpected film is this tender, elegiac road trip movie. THE STRAIGHT STORY follows the aging Alvin Straight (Farnsworth) who, after receiving word that his estranged brother is sick, and potentially dying, gets on his tractor to drive (mighty slowly) the cross-state distance to his brother’s side.
