The Straight Story
Drama • G • 1999 • 1 hr 52 min
all of the emotional breadth of a lynch film and none of the surrealism. leave it to him to make something so lofty from a plot so grounded.
Very sweet story. The premise makes it sound ludicrous but it is worth your time. Makes you sympathetic to the elderly as much as Up did
A calming adventure movie with good story. Doesnt have that lynchlian surrealism but still good
This movie walked so Nomadland could run. Great directing keeps this movie from being mediocre. My grandparents would enjoy this movie.

It’s interesting that this is a g-rated Disney movie made by David Lynch, and it’s very traditional, not like his other films.
Absolutely beautiful road movie drama, great music, direction and cinematography with some superb performances. Must see movie
