The Straight Story


A simple ''road'' movie about an old man, dying, who decides to go and visit his estranged brother, and make his peace before he dies. Along the way he has various adventures, meets various people, and dispenses OldTimer wisdom to all and sundry. Great scenery, pleasant music and an Oscar nomination for the star. Oh yeah, he makes the 500km trip on a tractor, so it takes a while...
