Will and Chris return for Episode 59 and we’re reviewing Will’s choice Nebraska. Not a documentary on the Bruce Springsteen classic album but the 2013 Alexander Payne comedy drama starring Bruce Dern.

Part road trip, part snapshot of Middle America and part portrait of dementia, shot in black and white Nebraska is funny, poignant and a fantastic vignette of a dysfunctional extended family.

Interestingly this was the first film Payne wasn’t directly involved in writing, yet it feels very much like he could have. It’s very hard not to love this film, the cinematography is beautiful, the whole cast is superb, it’s very, very funny, warm and moves along at a lovely gentle pace.

We also discover the most watched films by Chris and Will are Mrs Doubtfire and Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid respectively.

Scores

Overall Nebraska scores a very deserving 4.28 from Flixwatcher and guests and there was a lot of love for it from Twitter too. Highly recommended.
