“The Straight Story” easily makes my top ten movie list; I simply have to watch it every fall. Based on a true story about an elderly man on a mission, this touching and beautifully photographed movie with a Wisconsin connection has it all with moving performances by Richard Farnsworth (nominated for an Academy Award) and Sissy Spacek. The music soundtrack is exceptional. It will make you cry and it will make you laugh (I love the scene in the hardware store). This movie may not be well known or new (released in 1999), but it is one of my personal classics and appropriate for the whole family, rated G.
