In Richard Farnsworth's final (and academy award nominated role) in The Straight Story, Farnsworth plays Alvin Straight who spends weeks driving a tractor to visit his sick brother.
If you haven't seen David Lynch's film, it's one of those "along the way he interacts with people and transforms their lives." Oops...I suppose it's a spoiler there, but whatever the movie came out in 1999 so if you haven't seen...I'm not ruining anything, promise.
Sometimes I wonder if I would even let a guy like Alvin Straight intersect my life in a life impactful way. I think that as society becomes more secluded with less interaction, I personally tend to try to steer clear of weirdos and strangers.
I wonder if I'm missing out?
