Storyline

Summer, 1984: 30 years after Duane captained the high school football team and Jacy was homecoming queen, this Texas town near Wichita Falls prepares for its centennial. Oil prices are down, banks are failing, and Duane's $12 million in debt. His wife Karla drinks too much, his children are always in trouble, and he tom-cats around with the wives of friends. Jacy's back in town, after a mildly successful acting career, life in Italy, and the death of her son. Folks assume Duane and Jacy will resume their high school romance. And Sonny is "tired in his mind," causing worries for his safety. Can these friends find equilibrium in middle age? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great follow-up on 'The Last Picture Show
13 January 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews



It was great to see that many of the actors in 'The Last Picture Show' were in this film. I liked the way 'Texasville' used colour in this film representing the change of times from a time of picture shows to a more modern day feel.

This is one of my favourite films, enjoyable AND kept the character profiles throughout the film. This film is also close as it gets to the book it is based on. A refreshing change!
