Last year’s starkest poster – a silhouetted Bruce Dern impersonating a scarecrow – belies the warmth, wit and sporadic slapstick of Alexander Payne’s movie.
And for all the (much deserved) role-of-a-lifetime plaudits heaped on Dern, Nebraska’s at its bittersweet best as a two-man show: Will Forte is a revelation as the son who patiently follows Dern’s Woody on his quest to claim an obviously-bollocks million-dollar prize.
If some of the strokes are broad (the piggy nephews, June Squibb’s TMI outbursts), Payne paints a watercolour-delicate portrait of father-son friction.
Sole extra is a half-hour Making Of.
