See the award-winning new film Nebraska, written and directed by Alexander Payne (Sideways), before its national theatrical release on November 15, at this very special preview screening featuring a captured-live broadcast introduction by Rolling Stone film critic Peter Travers and post-film interviews with stars Bruce Dern and Will Forte!
The New York Film Critics Series presents a special pre-release preview screening of two-time Oscar-winner Alexander Payneâ€™s latest film, Nebraska, introduced via captured-live HD broadcast by Rolling Stone film critic Peter Travers. After the film, Travers will interview Nebraska stars Bruce Dern (Coming Home, HBOâ€™s Big Love) and Will Forte (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Saturday Night Live).
Alexander Payne is best known for writing and directing such modern-day classics as The Descendants, Sideways, About Schmidt and Election, and has won two Best Adapted Screenplay Academy Awards. In his new comedy/drama Nebraska, an aging, booze-addled father (2013 Cannes Film Festival Best Actor-winner Bruce Dern) makes a hilarious and touching road trip from Montana to Nebraska with his estranged son (Will Forte) in tow in order to claim a million dollar Mega Sweepstakes Marketing prize.
