Quotes

[first lines]
Leonard: [narrating] Landscape is destiny. I've carried that phrase in my head for years now. I can't remember where it comes from, but I know what it means here. It's a sense of being closed-in. Human limitation. It's different from the Midwest, where possibility sprawls bright and endless in every direction. People in the Himalayas, the Andes, do they live in the passive voice too, like their live aren't real? Their memories fixed, immutable?

"The World Made Straight" is well done.
2 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

"The World Made Straight" is a well made film from 2015. It is currently available on NetFlix Instant Download Streaming. The Director is David Burris. The story and screenplay were written by Shane Danielsen. Actors include Noah Wyle, Jeremy Invine, Minka Kelly, Adelaide Clemens, Steve Earle, Haley Joel Osment, Marcus Hester, Colin Dennard, Alex Van, Robin Mullins, Frances Burnett, Robert Haulbrook, Sandra Ellis Lafferty, Ryan Taylor Harris, Anne O'Shea, Tom Gilroy, Stephen Gevedon, Deacon Dawson, Danielle Leaf, Christopher Nathan Miller, Harp Sanddman, Don Young, Tim Ware, Doug MacMillan, Mike Mitschele and Mike Kennedy. The story is complex and involves the Appalachian people and marijuana and many flashbacks to the civil war era. I gave it 6 stars. Dale Haufrect
