Nebraska movie scene

Bruce Dern in Nebraska

Shot in luxurious black-and-white, Nebraska tells the story of  aging, booze-addled father Woody Grant (Dern) and his estranged adult son (Will Forte, MacGruber) who embark on a journey from Montana to Nebraska to claim a a million-dollar Mega Sweepstakes Marketing prize. What begins as a fool’s errand becomes a search for the road to redemption…

Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director (Payne), Best Actor (Dern), Best Original Screenplay (Bob Nelson), Best Supporting Actress (June Squibb, Inside Schmidt) and Best Cinematography (Phedon Papamichael), Nebraska is a critics’ darling (it garnered an 8/10 rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 190 reviews), that has grossed a not-too-shabby $12 million at the domestic box office since it opened as a limited theatrical release in December, 2013.
