I had high hopes for this movie and am streaming it as I type this only because my fiancee refuses to not finish a movie he's started. If he weren't here, I'd shut it off. I don't need an action film, but something has to happen. Something. Anything.

Yes, it's about the delusions of a geezer, yes his spouse is definitely an elderly shrew, and yes the black and white of Nebraska is certainly depressing...so those are reasons to go see this surprising masterpiece. You'd never think a dull dreary topic like Nebraska and an old man's dream of a winning lottery ticket would be the stuff Oscars are made of, but as sure as the sun rises in the morning (even in Nebraska) this coot flick will win any number of Academy Awards...

Great film Did justice to characters and land by shooting in B/W. Well cast. Only issue is that growing up there and knowing folks, the mother would have never said "***&^". I doubt that she would have done the graveyard scene either. Otherwise, these charactoers are as real as they get.

I liked it. Showed the aging process and the bond between father and sons that was not expressed in the old days. I liked the ending. Younger people would not understand the dynamics as well as 50+ adults.

loved the black and white
I am from the midwest so it was fun seeing all the old fashioned buildings/houses the jar of pickled eggs on the bar - just like small towns I grew up in
