PARIS, TEXAS (1984)
Dir. Wim Wenders

Winner of the Cannes Palme d'Or for Best Film in 1984, Paris, Texas is an unusual road movie with a screenplay by acclaimed playwright Sam Shepard. It tells the tale of Travis (Harry Dean Stanton), a man who reappears from the desert near the Mexican border after four years.

He traces his brother Walt (Dean Stockwell) who is bringing up Hunter (Hunter Carson), his seven-year-old son, his ex-wife Jane (Natassja Kinski) having abandoned him at Walt's door several years before. As virtual strangers, Hunter and Travis begin to build a wary friendship and conspire to find Jane and bring her back to be a real family.

Running time: 148 minutes&nnbsp;
