SYNOPSIS/PLOT "NEBRASKA" is a father and son road trip, from Billings, Montana to Lincoln, Nebraska that gets waylaid at a small town in central Nebraska, where the father grew up and has scores to settle. Told with deadpan humor and a unique visual style, it's ultimately the story of a son trying to get through to a father he doesn't understand.
PRO REVIEWS ----------------------------------------
"A thoroughly sweet and charming movie, and a reminder of Dern's quality as an actor (...) Rating: **** (out of five)" (Peter Bradshaw: The Guardian)
----------------------------------------
"A finely etched study of flawed characters stuck in life’s well-worn grooves (...) Dern is simply marvelous in a role the director reportedly first offered to Gene Hackman" (Scott Foundas: Variety)
----------------------------------------
"Payne’s insistence on shooting in black-and-white (...) enriches the film artistically (...) Great care is evident in casting down to the smallest bit player" (Todd McCarthy: The Hollywood Reporter)
----------------------------------------
"This is a comedy, with plenty of acutely funny lines, a handful of sharp sight gags and a few minutes of pure, perfect madcap. But a grim, unmistakable shadow falls across its wintry landscape." (A. O. Scott: The New York Times)
----------------------------------------
"Bruce Dern gives the performance of his career as the headstrong Woody in the brilliant, wisely observed and wryly funny 'Nebraska'. (...) Rating: **** (out of four)" (Claudia Puig: USA Today)
----------------------------------------
"This is a comedy, with plenty of acutely funny lines, a handful of sharp sight gags and a few minutes of pure, perfect madcap. But a grim, unmistakable shadow falls across its wintry landscape." (A. O. Scott: The New York Times)
----------------------------------------
"Is 'Nebraska' a comedy or a drama? Like life, it's both (...) It's damn near perfect, starting with the acting. (...) Rating: ***1/2 (out of ofur)" (Peter Travers: Rolling Stone)
----------------------------------------
"Much of 'Nebraska' is ordinary prose, but the best parts are plain-spoken comic poetry. (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Michael Phillips: Chicago Tribune)
