Nebraska - Movie Review

Old man shuffling along the highway. He is taken home by the sherriff. Turns out he is going to Nebraska to collect a million dollars he has won. He cannot drive because he does not have a license. His wife does not want to drive him, nor does anyone else, because they all know that he got a sham sweepstakes ticket. But his kind younger son offers to drive his father and get over this fixation of that ticket. On the way they meet their family, old friends and rake up old memories. Son gets to see father in different light. They go to the office and return with no money. But everyone finds something in the journey, definitely bigger than the lottery.

Simple theme. Beautifully done. Not a moment too long. Perfect. Loved it. Watch it.
