When a booze-addled father receives a sweepstakes megaprize notice in the mail, his dreams of riches send him on a trip to Nebraska with his none-too-eager estranged son. The acting, the cinematography and the directing is outstanding and out of this world fantastic.

A Different Kind of Road Trip

Although I think the depiction of small-town Nebrasaka life is taken a tad bit too far (the black and white makes it seem all that more bleak) - it's not that far off the mark (and I should know, I'm pretty much a life-long Nebraskan here). What Alexander Payne always gets right is his characters - and he hits another home run here. Bruce Dern is simply perfect as the elderly, somewhat confused and alcoholic Woody Grant. He has received and (obviously scam) notice in the mail that he has won $1 million - and he only has to get to Lincoln, NE to claim his prize. His wife, Kate (an equally impressive June Squibb) is fed up - as he has been leaving the house and trying to walk his way from his home in Billings, Montana to the Cornhusker state.

His quiet son David (Will Forte - proving he ...

Senile third world problems.

There are always a couple of films that come out every year that everyone enjoys except for me. Nebraska is definitely one of those.
I'd be lying if I said I enjoyed any of Alexander Payne's self-important dialogue-filled, underachieving, landscape-contemplating bore-fests. Nor do I enjoy road movies… Nor do I enjoy black and white in a modern film for no particular reason. So, these reasons alone pretty much evoke a recipe for disliking in me.

This pretentious 'let's go on a road-trip out of the blue on a quest to find something of value while at the same time getting to know our inner selves' bulls*it in movies nowadays is getting on my nerves. I can just picture Payne in the director's chair going, 'Oh yeah, the critics are gonna love that'.
Every single isolated and yet bloated a...

Soft-Spoken, Deeply Resonant

'Nebraska' is a pleasant surprise of a small movie. I really enjoyed the supreme authenticity and relatable, sharp humor within this refreshingly simple tale. The writing and acting present so many real-to-life moments, some of which I've seen play out similarly between my own elders. It just gets everything right about those of older age, as well as the atmosphere of small-town living. I know more than one person that could be represented by each character in this movie. I love that fact. The story itself shows the underlying feelings for one's life miss-steps and those left behind. We see this from every character, but it is best represented in Bruce Dern's tremendous performance as the soft-spoken husband and father with deeper secrets. The film's message resonates within the r...

This is a pre-discussion.
I haven't seen this movie - but it's not because I don't want to. In fact, I spent several hours tracking all of the possible places it was playing. I live in Wisconsin. The closest theater I found was Omaha, Nebraska. Why do I want to see this movie? Because it is one of the few movies where my husband and I meet. We've enjoyed Fahrenheit 9/11, Life Is Beautiful and GasLand together. He likes slapstick, humour, animation. We both like science fiction but never the same science fiction. I like foreign, independent, thriller, action, historical, biographical, documentary. But there's something about this film that we can both jump on board with. I know for him it's because his heritage is Nebraskan and he has this silent relationship with his father - every male is silently forging on. I am rife for adventures and husband, exact opposite. I was all about traveling to Omaha to see this movie, but, there was no way I could get him to budge. So, I have to wait until it comes to Wisconsin or out on disc. Let me know how it is?
