  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


David Lynch (Wild at Heart, Blue Velvet) has veered away from his normal style and made a touchingly gentle film based on a true story which has become a great success. Alvin Straight decides to make the journey of 300 miles to make up with his estranged brother. He is determined to make his own way there and hitches up a makeshift trailer to his lawn mower and sets out on a six week journey through the American heartland and the wonderful characters he meets along the way.
