a film by Alexander Payne
An aging, booze-addled father makes the trip from Montana to Nebraska with his estranged son in order to claim a million-dollar Mega Sweepstakes Marketing prize.
The film was nominated for six Oscars, including best film and best male actor. Bruce Dern gives a terrific performance as a distant father with a little dementia.
“Even to your old age I am the same, even when your hair is gray, I will bear you;
it is I who have done this, I who will continue, and I who will carry you to safety.”
