Nebraska
 
 
Directed by Alexander Payne, USA 2013
114 mins. English dialogue
 
Summary:
 
Director Alexander Payne (Sideways, The Descendants) takes the helm for this black and white road trip drama starring Bruce Dern as Woody, a cantankerous old drunk who is convinced he has won a million dollar magazine sweepstakes, and Will Forte as the son who grudgingly agrees to drive him to Nebraska to claim his winnings. During a stop in their hometown, word gets out about Woody's fortune, first making him a hero then, later, the subject of local gossip, celebrity and (inevitably) greed.
 
What the Critics say:
 
"Is 'Nebraska' a comedy or a drama? Like life, it's both ... This is a movie to bring home and live with, to kick around in your head after it hits you in the heart. It's damn near perfect, starting with the acting." (Peter Travers - Rolling Stone)
