Story : An old man with a touch of dementia and a great appetite for ale has Nebraska on his mind because he believes he's won a million dollars in a magazine sweepstakes. One of his two sons, although aware that the 'prize' is just a marketing gimmick, grudgingly agrees to take his dad from Montana to Lincoln, Nebraska, to claim the loot.

Review : Nebraska begins with a stooped Woody Grant (Dern) shuffling along a pavement. His son David (Forte) finds him and takes him home, where we are introduced to David's mother Kate (Squibb) who is quite the tough-talking old lady of the house. It doesn't take them long to figure out that the gullible-but-honest ol' Woody has been suckered into thinking he's won something big.

David, a salesman, is a simpler sort compared to his brother Ross (Odenkirk), a TV news anchor. His ex-girlfriend Noel (Doty) drops in one day to return his belongings, but refuses to move back in. Realizing that he has almost nothing (except a boring job) to tie him down, he decides to indulge his dad's flight of fancy and drive him down to Nebraska. A motel stop, some beer benders and a few hundred miles later, they arrive in Woody's hometown called Hawthorne where they spend some time with Woody's brother Ray (Howard) and family, which includes Ray's hick sons Cole and Bart (Ratray, Driscoll).

Bereft of cliches and sentimentalism, Payne brilliantly portrays a wealth of characters as well as perfectly capturing the wide, sweeping panoramas of the American Mid West with frames that look exceptional.

There are moments of melancholy in this study of father-son bonding and there are plenty of times where you laugh aloud but for the most part, the film bursts at the seams with many little quirks. Moving at its own pace, this is a fantastic study of Mid West America, where time almost stands still. The soundtrack is also as authentic to the theme as it gets. Black-and-white with plenty of shades of grey,* Nebraska* is a road trip film like no other.
