NEBRASKA – Bruce Dern plays Woody Grant as a tempestuous Missouri father who’s convinced he’s won a million dollar magazine sweepstakes, and Will Forte as the son who grudgingly agrees to drive him to Nebraska to claim his winnings. Bob Odenkirk and Stacy Keach costar and June Squibb as Kate Grant.
Q-Tips say: SEE IT! A movie that is in black/white and might not be for everyone.
Mrs. Q says: It is slow at times, awkward, touching and sad, but at times, very very funny.
An unusual type of performance for Bruce Dern – but a good one. Believe me, the 20’s somethings will not rush to see Nebraska. Mrs. Q especially enjoyed the performance by June Squibb as Kate Grant, Woody Grant’s wife. At first she comes across as a Pain in the a-, a major PITA. However, as the movie progresses we find out what she is really like. Go see it and/or rent it. You will enjoy NEBRASKA, especially if you are older.
