The Straight Story

5

David Lynch turns a weird premise - old bloke travels across America on a lawnmower to see his dying brother - into a surprisingly heartwarming tale of family, friendship and basic human decency. As mower man Alvin Straight, Oscar nominee Richard Farnsworth turns in a subtle, expressive performance, but the real stars here are Freddie Francis's lush cinematography and Angelo Badalamenti's soothing score.
