Set during the early 1950s, in the loneliest Texas ‘nowheresville’, this elegy to cinema itself focuses on the daily shuffles of three futureless teens. Adapted from a Larry McMurtry novel, it has an aching melancholy for the loved-and-lost, unfulfilled lives of the older generation of Anarene, Texas. Embodied poignantly in Cloris Leachman’s character, these elders are set against the excitable and uncertain potential of the next generation, portrayed with fresh-faced, unsophisticated energy by a trio of screen newcomers: Cybill Shepherd, Jeff Bridges and Timothy Bottoms.

Presented by Cinema Rediscovered and Park Circus as part of Cinema Rediscovered on Tour, a Watershed project with support from BFI awarding funds from The National Lottery and MUBI.
