Director Peter Bogdanovich revisits small-town Texas life in the long-awaited sequel to his 1971 masterpiece 'The Last Picture Show'. It's been over 30 years since Duane Jackson, Sonny Crawford and Jacy Farrow graduated from high school. Life is still bittersweet as the town prepares to host the county's centennial celebration. Duane struck it rich with oil, but is saddled with $12 million in debt and a shopaholic wife, Karla. To make matters worse, his dysfunctional children are out of control: his teenage son has affairs with older, married women, his daughter is on a continuous carousel of divorces and engagements, and the twins are egg throwing, smart-mouthed adolescents. Duane himself is a local legend with the ladies, but he's completely thrown when Jacy, who's been living abroad, returns to his sleepy hometown to mourn the death of her child. Sonny, meanwhile, has become a local politician and businessman, but is increasingly forgetful and suffers from all too realistic hallucinations.
Based on a Larry McMurtry novel.
