    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.
