Nebraska

Plot
Believing he has won $1 million in a lottery, elderly Montana resident Woody Grant (Dern) repeatedly tries to make his own way to the state capital of Nebraska to claim his prize. To save him from harm, Woody’s son David (Forte) decides to drive the old man there himself, stopping off at his father’s former hometown to break up the journey.


Verdict
A charming road movie that develops into a full-blown study of life and roots, offering a beautiful insight into the way families migrate and change.
