The Straight Story (1999)
Lynch delivers an uncharacteristically straightforward and heartfelt account of Alvin Straight (played by Richard Farnsworth), a true-life 73-year-old from Iowa who drove his lawn tractor to Wisconsin to make peace with his estranged brother. Post-screening discussion is led by psychoanalyst Marilyn Metzl and journalist and film critic Abby Olcese.
Presented in partnership with the Greater Kansas City and Topeka Psychoanalytic Center.
