"NEBRASKA" is a father and son road trip, from Billings, Montana to Lincoln, Nebraska that gets waylaid at a small town in central Nebraska, where the father grew up and has scores to settle. Told with deadpan humor and a unique visual style, it's ultimately the story of a son trying to get through to a father he doesn't understand.Written by

Alexander Payne claimed a color version was created in an effort to appease Paramount Vantage studio executives over releasing a black and white film. Although he had no plans or intentions of ever releasing it to the public, it was shown on premium movie channel Epix as a "World Color Premiere" at 10:00 pm EST on August 10, 2014, immediately following the 8:00 pm premiere of the black and white version.

1- Heart-breaking , how and when: you don't get to know , it just breaks your heart in many moments and also along the general themes .
2- Very thought-provoking , especially if you're in your 20s or 30s .
3- Too deep without even getting near to being complicated and with very little dialogue .
4- Too realistic and too believable , although unpredictable in the least sense with top-notch performances , mainly Bruce Dern who completely swept me off my feet and is too absorbing , thanks to Director Alexander Payne .
One of the best movies I've ever seen , thought about and deeply felt . It will make you wonder about and feel many things , maybe for the first time , like what it is like to get old or have traumas and never talk about or even try to explore the inside of you after them , not loving your children enough and realizing that too late , being hopeless and leading a meaningless life at one point , what ambitions and hope do to a man's soul and many more ..
Strongly recommended for whoever wants to feel and explore genuine themes , which , I warn , are really sad , hopeful , depressing , happy , hilarious , strong and beautiful all at the same time .
