The Straight Story + Introduction at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 23 August 2019, from £5.50 - Book now

Based on the true story of Alvin Straight’s journey across Iowa and Wisconsin on an old lawnmower to visit his ailing brother, The Straight Storyis frequently cited as the director’s most straightforward and atypical work. Dig a little deeper, however, and the film chimes perfectly with a sense that for all the evil in the universe, good will out. Farnsworth is sensational in a rare leading role.

This Fri 23 Aug, 18:00 screening of The Straight Story will screen from a 35mm print introduced by Jason Wood, Creative Director: Film and Culture at HOME.
