    January 01, 2014prometheus7875 Report ThisGood movie. It will give all of the Whole Foods immortality seeking yuppies a clear vision as to what it is like to get old and not die young; hence, the old adage only the good die young. December 30, 2013fafner55 Report ThisStunning and low key- almost under the radar- portrayal of family relationships and love without one iota of sentimentality. Filmed in black and white, which adds depth to this lovely film. December 29, 2013creps4 Report ThisI loved this film- old folks kicking ass, grown children with depth of understanding of their aged parents' needs, victory seized from the jaws of defeat, the stark beauty of the American landscape. Don't miss this film. December 29, 2013pmason100 Report ThisYou will love this movie if you're from the Midwest or small town America. It was a little slow to start, but doesn't take long before you settle in and really appreciate each character. Anyone with older parents (or who is older themselves) really needs to see ********** a sweet, funny movie. December 26, 2013jerryjou Report ThisThis movie takes me back in with my parents. It's black and white which adds to movies edge, old. The cast was well selected to play the roles. It's one yhose rare movies that aged actors still gets parts. Thats good. I'd give 4 stars. Philamena, however, wins the aged casting department December 22, 2013isolate1 Report ThisThis is one of best movies produced in recent years. Simple and true, it hits a range of emotions that all viewers can relate to. This movie had performance by acting, real performance, not all the computer generatered slop. You will leave the theater feeling good. See it!!! December 19, 2013maclaw1Report ThisExcellent! Dern and Sqibb will both be nominated. Touches every emotion. December 16, 2013tmmytomatoReport ThisDead on! Payne uses the black and white canvas to depict simple but quietly emotional lives in this midwest setting. The stark imagry took me back to my upbringings, the casting was perfect with many award worthy preformances. Dern has never been better. December 10, 2013lgjhere1 Report ThisOutstanding for a simple story with simple dialogue, simple characters, and one that doesn't pound the senses like most movies today, a refreshing escape. Oscar for Dern. December 08, 2013kwms158 Report ThisBRILLIANT! Bruce Dern; Will Forte and June Squibb should receive Oscar nods for their performance. Showcases the painful \"ordinary\" of life. Loved it for a number of reasons. Critic Reviews powered by Metacritic ™RogerEbert.com Nebraska is full of complicated people marked by flaws and failures, mistakes and regrets; they can be selfish bastards, too. It often feels as though Payne is trying to strip away the cliché that the region is populated exclusively by hardworking, decent hearted types. Full Review Bob MondelloNPR The filmmaker has crammed Nebraska with orneriness, humor, greed, Americana and performances so natural they seem like found objects — especially Dern's, which caps a career of character parts with a delicately nuanced character. Full Review Claudia PuigUSA Today Bruce Dern gives the performance of his career as the headstrong Woody in the brilliant, wisely observed and wryly funny Nebraska. What stands out is the fullness of the character, with mannerisms and expressions that make him wholly dimensional. Full Review Dave CalhounTime Out London More than ever Payne allows the humour to rise up gently from his story rather than burst through it. Full Review David EdelsteinNew York Magazine (Vulture) The movie is a triumph of an especially satisfying kind. It arrives at a kind of gnarled grace that’s true to this sorry old man and the family he let down in so many ways. Full Review More
