Texasville is a 1990 American drama film written and directed by Peter Bogdanovich, based on the novel Texasville by Larry McMurtry. A sequel to The Last Picture Show (1971), the film features Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd, Cloris Leachman, Timothy Bottoms, Randy Quaid, and Eileen Brennan reprising their roles from the original film.
Texasville is in color, while The Last Picture Show was filmed in black and white. The film received mixed reviews from critics, holding a 55% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and did not do well at the box office, grossing just $2 million against its $18 million budget.
In 1984, 33 years after the events depicted in The Last Picture Show, 50-year-old Duane Jackson (Bridges) is a wealthy tycoon of a near-bankrupt oil company. His relationship with his family is not prospering, either. His wife, Karla (Annie Potts), believes that Duane is cheating on her, and his son, Dickie (William McNamara), seems to be following in his father's libidinous footsteps.
Sonny Crawford's (Bottoms) increasingly erratic behavior causes Duane concern over Sonny's mental health.
Jacy Farrow (Shepherd) has traveled the world and experienced its pleasures. A painful tragedy brings her back to her hometown and once again into Duane's life.
