Friday Night at the Movies: The Straight Story

The Straight StoryThe Reverend Fred Conger will present and lead a discussion on the film The Straight Story, a 1999 release starring Richard Farnsworth and Sissy Spacek as 73-year-old Alvin Straight and his mentally-challenged daughter Rose. Learning that his long-estranged brother, Lyle, is seriously ill, Alvin decides it’s time to reconcile. The only problem: Alvin can no longer drive. Undeterred, he sets out on a 260 mile odyssey aboard his 1966 John Deere riding mower and meets and touches the lives of many souls during his six week journey.

Please sign up in the church office starting Wednesday, December 1. Popcorn, soft drinks, coffee, and dessert will be provided; a $2 donation is suggested.
