(Doing this from my phone forgive the format issues)
Nebraska-is about a father making the trip from Montana to Nebraska with his estranged son in order to claim a million-dollar Mega Sweepstakes Marketing prize.
When the film comes on I'm wondering if the acting is going to improve. I really didn't feel anything for the film until the last 30 minutes. It wasn't until then that the characters gave me a reason to like them. This was like lol the mid-western version of Lottery TIcket an urban film about a young man with a winning lottery ticket.
That being said if this were a 45 minute film packed with all the little sweet touches about how people act when they think you have money. Then followed by the lead hushing those who've done him wrong his whole life or if you want to look at it a different way where that lead is given something to make him feel better about his wasted life. All of this is probably why people love the film. Me no love but I liked it.
3 1/2 stars
