"The Sweetest And Most Compassionate Movie Lynch Has Ever Made."-Chicago Tribune

Based on the true story that captured the hearts of America, The Straight Story is one of those rare films offering powerful, uplifting entertainment for audiences of all ages.Directed by acclaimed, two-time Academy Award nominee David Lynch (Wild At Heart, Twin Peaks), this gentle, inspiring film celebrates the human spirit.

Academy Award nominee Richard Farnsworth (Misery, The Natural) stars as Alvin Straight -- a no-nonsense man who has never been one to lean on others.Now at an age when his eyesight denies him the ability to drive, and walking is accomplished only with the help of two canes, Alvin lives a quiet life with his daughter Rose (Academy Award winner Sissy Spacek).But when the call comes that Alvin's estranged brother, Lyle (Harry Dean Stanton, The Green Mile), has suffered a debilitating stroke, Alvin embarks on a dangerous and emotional journey to make amends.With little money, but plenty of patience and tenacity, he climbs aboard his 1966 John Deere lawnmower and plots the 260-mile course from his small Iowa town to Lyle's home in Wisconsin.

Filmed along the actual route that the real Alvin Straight traveled in 1994, The Straight Story is a heartwarming and poignant drama chronicling Alvin's six-week odyssey and the many lives he touches along the way.
