USA 2013. Director Alexander Payne.
A wittily observed film of family life through a road journey.
Bruce Dern won the Academy Award for best actor and Alexander Payne should have collected for best director.
The story concerns an elderly man who believes he has won a major lottery and travels to collect his winnings accompanied by his son.
In the course of this odyssey we learn about his past life and how he, the people he knew, and his family changed.
The Nebraska winter scenery is an important part of this absorbing comedy drama.
