Halifax Film Society will screen the multi-academy award nominee Nebraska at its next screening on Sunday, January 25.
After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks he’s struck it rich and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Shot in black and white across four states, Nebraska tells the story of family life in the heartland of America. It is ultimately the story of a son trying to get through to a father he doesn’t understand. Dern won the best actor award at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. The film will be shown at Halifax Playhouse at 7.30pm.
