The great Alexander Payne did it again! He delivered an amazing bittersweet film that got us all talking about his great talent.
Nebraska is a very intimate film that deals with family bonds and human relationships, in a very delicate, sometimes funny way. The story is about a senior who believes that he has won 1mil dollars in a Mega Sweepstakes Marketing Prize and sets off on a road trip with his son to claim it.
The road movie turns into an opportunity for his estranged son to get to know his father and his past better and come closer to him. Great performances by the veteran Bruce Dern, SNL's dearest Will Forte and a hilarious performance by June Squibb, in the role of the mother.
Nebraska is yet another great film by Payne that has gained a lot of Academy & Golden Globe nominations but unfortunatelly might not be able to win, having to compete with Mcconaughey, Lawrence and DiCaprio.
It is by far one of his best films though! Definitely a must-see!
Ever since I first set foot on a cinema theatre, I knew that something magical was happening there....
