Showtime is 6:45p.m. I will arrive at the theater by 6p.m. We will move into the auditorium where our movie is playing to get seats at around 6:20-6:25p.m.
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. Directed by Alexander Payne(About Schmidt, Sideways, The Descendants). Written by Bob Nelson. Produced by Albert Berger, Doug Mankoff, George Parra, Julie M. Thompson, & Ron Yerxa. Running time: 115 mins. Rated R for some language.
Bruce Dern's performance is being widely praised as one the best of his career and Ty Burr, reviewer for The Boston Globe, calls "Nebraska" "a desolate comedy-drama about fathers, sons, life’s highways and missed off-ramps...a movie that floods you with emotion when you least expect it." So, come out and join us for what promises to be a night of fine film and agreeable fellowship.
Note: Depending on when the movie actually starts-and ends-those of us who want to may be able to repair as a group to some nearby establishment after the film for food &/or drinks.
