The Straight Story
73-year-old Alvin Straight, who has not spoken to his brother for over ten years, is told that his brother suffers from a heart attack. He sets off on a long journey to meet him - on his motor lawn mower. David Lynch, the director of Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet, presents in The Straight Story a different and surprising road movie, and an America populated by kind, caring people. The message is as crystal clear as simple: make peace with each other before it's too late.
