NE­BRASKA

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.40AM, FOX­TEL MAS­TER­PIECE ★★★★

A beau­ti­ful, bit­ter­sweet com­edy-drama about a frag­ile old-timer (Os­carnom­i­nated Bruce Dern), who mis­tak­enly thinks he is about to be­come a lottery mil­lion­aire. With an im­mac­u­lately writ­ten screen­play at its dis­posal, Ne­braska is free to put a well-cho­sen cast through their paces with just the right notes of hu­mour and pathos. Stun­ning black-and-white cin­e­matog­ra­phy show­cases the open skies (and closed minds) of mid­dle Amer­ica to ab­so­lute per­fec­tion. Di­rected by Alexan­der Payne (The De­scen­dants). Highly rec­om­mended.
