This is a screenplay. It is clearly printed on the cover. One of the members of my BOOK club asked us to read this. I found it difficult. So I went to a friend's house to watch the movie. It's a gentle, colorful story, filled with the beauty and generous characters of northeast Iowa. Much better as a movie than a book(screenplay).

This screenplay is a great addition to the movie, which is probabaly my very favorite movie of all time. The book contains scenes that were either left out of the movie during it's filming, or "wound up on the cutting room floor" during editing. That's a shame. I'm hoping that maybe someday Disney will produce DVD of the movie that includes these deleted scenes.

RIP, Richard Farnsworth, and May God Bless You.

I purchased the first DVD for my wife and I, and the other two DVD's for my adult son and daughter so that they would be able to share with their children, a very tender true story.

Did not realize it was the script for the movie. Did not read it.
A simple clear blueprint for a great movie. Anyone interested in writing a screenplay should buy this book. Anyone interested in seeing a solid, classic American movie should see "The Straight Story". Its pretty amazing, every word in this screenplay is up there on the screen. It is heartening that in this age that Sweeney and Roach have dared to approach such a simple true story. David Lynch is to be commended for his taste in selecting this work to film.
