The Straight Story (U)
A retired farmer and widower in his 70s, Alvin Straight (Richard Farnsworth) learns one day that his distant brother Lyle (Harry Dean Stanton) has suffered a stroke and may not recover. Alvin is determined to make things right with Lyle while he still can, but his brother lives in Wisconsin, while Alvin is stuck in Iowa with no car and no driver’s license.
From director David Lynch comes a lyrical portrait of one man’s real journey across America’s Heartland. Filmed along the 260-mile route that the actual Alvin Straight traversed in 1994 from Laurens, Iowa to Mt. Zion, Wisconsin, “the Straight story” chronicles Alvin’s patient odyssey and those he meets along the way. When not rolling along at five miles an hour aboard his ’66 John Deere, Alvin encounters a number of strangers, from a teenage runaway to a fellow World War II veteran. By sharing his life’s earned wisdom with simple stories, Alvin has a profound impact on these characters that color his pilgrimage.
