Nominated for six Academy Awards, Nebraska is one of the most unique films of the season. Set amongst sparse landscapes, filmed entirely in black-and-white, featuring no special effects, and starring Bruce Dern in a truly career-defining performance, Nebraska is both bittersweet and innovative. Dern's surly Woody Grant is a retiree determined to make his way to Lincoln to retrieve a million dollar sweepstakes prize, with his openly dismissive son David (Will Forte) tagging along for the ride. Dern will discuss Nebraska and his illustrious film career in a conversation following the screening.
