Director: Alexander Payne (Sideways; The Descendants)
Main cast: Bruce Dern, Will Forte, June Squibb
Summary: Filmed in black-and-white, this is a road trip movie in the vein of Payne's Sideways
(2003) following a father and son's trek from Montana to Nebraska, meeting friends along the way
Why it could win: Payne is an award season favourite (see also About Schmidt), and if Nebraska
is as interesting as his previous efforts, it has a chance.
Rotten Tomatoes score: TBC
