The Straight Story

Buy Tickets

(1999) dir David Lynch w/Richard Farnsworth, Sissy Spacek, Jane Galloway [112 min; 35mm]
A stark departure for Lynch, THE STRAIGHT STORY was inspired by the true tale of Alvin Straight, an elderly farmer who traveled more than 200 miles to visit his ailing brother – from Iowa to Wisconsin – on his John Deere riding lawnmower.

“A slow-moving, folksy-looking, profoundly spiritual film.” – Janet Maslin, New York Times

“Lynch has slowed the world down and gotten back in touch with it.” – David Edelstein, Slate

“THE STRAIGHT STORY proves to be a simple, linear, and straight-ly told narrative detailing the compelling nostalgia of a forgotten place in America.” – Daniel Clemens, Brattle Film Notes
