Nebraska

Woody Grant is a prickly, aging father of two with advancing dementia. When he receives a letter notifying him of a massive sweepstake win he insists on making the journey to Nebraska to claim his prize. Woody’s son David reluctantly agrees to the road trip and the drive takes them through Woody’s old hometown, where word of his windfall spreads through like wildfire. Alexander Payne’s Nebraska perfectly balances comedy, drama and pathos, and features an excellent performance from Bruce Dern as the irascible Woody Grant.
