Angelo Badalamenti – Rose’s Theme – Music & Images from The Straight Story

Music and images from David Lynch’s 1999 film The Straight Story. Music composed by Angelo Badalamenti – Rose’s Theme.

The Straight Story is based on the true story of Alvin Straight’s journey via lawnmower across Iowa and Wisconsin. Richard Farnsworth is absolutely perfect as Alvin Straight. Call me sentimental but I find The Straight Story immensely charming.

  1. Caught this one at the theater. Quite a lovely little film I’m looking to revisiting.

  2. Yet another incredible film from David Lynch. I got to see this in the theater and the film looks as beautiful as the story it tells,all the more amazing because it’s fact based. I find this film more deeply moving the older I get just as I did when I first saw The Straight Story.

    • It really is beautiful, visually and at its core…and Farnsworth is amazing as is Spacek. Although he is only in it briefly, I am a big fan of Harry Dean Stanton who I think is a hugely talented actor.

  3. The bundle of twigs!
