The Straight Story (U)

USA/1999/107mins/U Dir: David Lynch With: Richard Farnsworth, Sissy Spacek, Harry Dean Stanton, Everett McGill

A lyrical portrait of one man's real journey across America's Heartland. Based on the real story of Alvin Straight who traversed a 260-mile route in 1994 from Iowa to Wisconsin on a John Deere mower with speed that could only reach 5mph. We ride with Alvin on his patient odyssey and those he meets along the way, from a teenage runaway to a fellow war veteran, sharing his wisdom. 

+ Dementia Friendly screening 14.07.

"A slow-moving, folksy-looking, profoundly spiritual film that can hold an audience in absolute thrall. As the least likely filmmaker on the planet to pull off such a G-rated miracle, Lynch rises to this challenge with exhilarating vigor"
