From Oscar-winning filmmaker Alexander Payne (Sideways) comes Nebraska, a bittersweet dramatic comedy about a father-and-son road trip through an emotionally and economically parched homeland. After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks he's struck it rich, and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip with him to claim the fortune. As the duo embarks upon their unusual journey, other family members join in the quest, leading to adventures both poignant and hilariously unexpected. Shot in shimmering black and white across four states, Nebraska is a funny, bracing and heartwarming tale of family life in the heartland of America. Co-starring Stacy Keach, June Squibb and Bob Odenkirk. (Dir. by Alexander Payne, 2013, USA, 115 mins., Rated R, Paramount Vantage) Digital
