Film - Cinestudio
A poignant, humorous father-and-son road trip through the Midwest, shot in stunning wide screen black and white photography, is proof that American movie-making is still a creative force. Alexander Payne, whose films include
, gives us Bruce Dern as a possibly demented aging man who believes he must travel from Missouri to his hometown in Nebraska to pick up his million dollar lottery ticket, and Will Forte as the conflicted but obliging son who agrees to take him there. Winner of six Academy Award
nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress (June Squibb). 115 min.
"At 76, Dern finally gets to be the leading man he's long deserved to be, filling
s wide open spaces with a performance of subtlety and surpassing emotional courage." - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post.
