A brilliantly made black & White film that tells the story of a old man Played by Bruce Dern who wants to go to Nebraske to collect what he though was a million dollars. But his son played by Will Forte tries to stop him from going there. Why the million dollars? He wants to use it to buy a pick-up truck. Finally, he gives in and starts on the long trip there to collect his money. While there he stops by Bruce's home town to revisit his sibbings. I love his family. It's like the family in "August: Osage County" minus the anger issues. June Squibb really deserve her Oscar nomination. She is quite funny about telling stories about people who since past away. Like I said before, this movie was shot in Black & White. it's the third movie in the last 13 months after "Frankenweenie" and "Francis Ha" that it was shot in black and white. Director Alexander Payne has made a terrific road movie.
