Summary: Comments:

An ageing, 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.

"Nebraska" is a father and son road trip, from Billings, Montana to Lincoln, Nebraska that gets waylaid at a small town in central Nebraska, where the father grew up and has scores to settle. Told with deadpan humor and a unique visual style, it's ultimately the story of a son trying to get through to a father he doesn't understand.

Upon its world premiere at the 66th Cannes Film Festival on May 23, 2013, Nebraska was met with almost unanimously positive reviews, with praise being directed to the acting (particularly Dern and Squibb), direction, screenplay, and cinematography.

The critical consensus states "Elegant in its simplicity and poetic in its message, Nebraska adds another stirringly resonant chapter to Alexander Payne's remarkable filmography."
