The Straight Story


Dir. David Lynch. 1999, 112 mins. 35mm. With Richard Farnsworth, Sissy Spacek, Harry Dean Stanton. An old man buys a John Deere tractor and drives from Iowa to Wisconsin to see his estranged, ailing brother, in this surprisingly straightforward film by David Lynch, a beautifully humane work that is as overflowing with human eccentricity as any of the director’s other masterpieces.
