Nebraska: beautiful little film. Quite well-written, this drama extracts the funny moments not by making fun of its characters, but by respecting them and being good-natured about their flaws, much like the way the main character, well-played by Will Forte, is. That is the source of the deep humanity of its simple story of complex, but wonderful, familial relationships. Bruce Dern is simply marvelous in the role, played with extreme simplicity and effectiveness; the whole cast is, in fact, strong. The black-and-white cinematography is soothing and feels perfect for this.
