    USA | 101 minutes | True Stories

No Oscar®-winning film captured its tumultuous time as indelibly as 1969’s X-rated Midnight Cowboy. Rich with interviews and archival footage, this ambitious documentary chronicles not just its unlikely creation, but the cultural, sexual and political undercurrents that fueled John Schlesinger’s classic movie.
