The Straight Story
Director: David Lynch Run Time: 112 min. Format: 35mm Film Release Year: 1999
Starring: Jane Galloway, Richard Farnsworth, Sissy Spacek
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.
