A trailer and clip has been released for Nebraska, the latest film from director Alexander Payne (About Schmidt, Sideways, The Descendants). The film follows a man who takes his father to claim a million dollar sweepstake win that he believes he has won. It looks fantastic. Beautifully shot in black and white, with Payne’s sarcastic and sentimental approach, this will definitely be one to look out for. It’ll probably be up for a few nods come awards season too.
Check out the trailer, then take a look at a clip from the movie below it.
After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks he’s struck it rich, and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Shot in black and white across four states, Nebraska tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America.
Starring Bruce Dern, Will Forte, Stacy Keach, June Squibb and Bob Odenkirk.
ETA: USA – 15 November, 2013.
