An aging, booze-addled father makes the trip from Montana to Nebraska with his estranged son in order to claim a million-dollar Mega Sweepstakes Marketing prize.
If you're looking for fast cars, pretty girls, and lots of action - this movie may not be for you. But if you are into character study, childhood memories, and personal relationships... you just might enjoy it.
It is a very slow-moving film for the most part, but it's pretty funny and a little touching throughout. It reminded me a bit of 'Fargo,' but also of 'going home' - personally. A slower-paced time when life seemed easier. Plus, Bruce Dern is splended, and even though June Squibb won a well-deserved Oscar nomination, I really liked the role of the sons, Will Forte and Bob Odenkirk (Sol on Breaking Bad).
Anyway, you know me and movie reviews - the only thing I know about is whether I liked it or not - and I liked this movie. It was great on a cold Monday night with m'Lady, wrapped up in a blanket in the living room. So... there.
