Alvin Straight (Richard Farnsworth) embodies age-acquired wisdom through his urgency and determination to reconcile with his brother while both men are still alive. He understands what he needs to do to finish his life well and to live it to the fullest. As he travels 240 miles on a riding lawn mower to accomplish his goal, he meets several people of various ages, diligently extending that wisdom to each one he encounters. He graciously extends a listening ear and anything else he is able to give, showing them what it looks like to live well. -- Ed Bertram
