Description

David Lynch directs this drama which tells the tale of Alvin Straight (Richard Farnsworth), a 73-year-old Midwesterner who sets out on an unusual personal odyssey.

Alvin lives with his intellectually disabled daughter Rose (Sissy Spacek), and is struggling with his failing health.

When he hears that his estranged brother Lyle (Harry Dean Stanton) has suffered a stroke, he realises that now is the time to heal the rift between them.

However, lacking a car of his own, Alvin opts to make the three hundred-mile journey from Iowa to Wisconsin on his lawnmower.
