Travis (Harry Dean Stanton) has been missing for years when he suddenly reconnects with his brother, who has been raising Travis' son as his own. Travis tries to forge a new relationship with the seven-year old boy, but rebuilding a family proves more difficult than Travis would like. A poignant screenplay by Sam Shepard and an evocative use of the American landscape by cinematographer Robby Muller make this one of Wenders' most moving and acclaimed films. With Nastassja Kinski.

With Jennifer Lawrence. Official selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. “An exquisite, beautifully acted gem of a film.” -Variety
