The Straight Story (Imprint Collection #61)
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 (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.
- " Lovely little film with a sweet and subtle lead performance you won't soon forget " – Rachel Wagner
- " It's intriguing to watch the Lynch of Blue Velvet and Lost Highway feel his way toward less wounding surrealism – into images that have the power to hurt and will do none. " – Anthony Lane
- " It's hard to imagine a gentler film, yet Lynch fully exploits the stately pace to gaze fondly upon life's rich pageant. " – David Parkinson
