Paris, Texas

"Paris, Texas is a landmark work in every sense: understated, powerful, sublime." - L.A. Weekly

New German Cinema pioneer Wim Wenders (WINGS OF DESIRE) brings his keen eye for landscape to the American Southwest in PARIS, TEXAS, a profoundly moving character study written by the late Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Sam Shepard. PARIS, TEXAS follows the mysterious, nearly mute drifter Travis (a magnificent Harry Dean Stanton, whose face is a landscape all its own) as he tries to reconnect with his young son, living with his brother (Dean Stockwell) in L.A., and his missing wife (Nastassja Kinski). From this simple setup, Wenders and Shepard produce a powerful statement on codes of masculinity and the myth of the American family, as well as an exquisite visual exploration of a vast, crumbling world of canyons and neon.

"A rewarding story of distance, separation and ultimately, of renewed chances." - Fort Worth Star Telegram

"What separates 'Paris, Texas' from most of today's movies is its gentle humanism." - New York Daily News
