Best movie I have seen in a long time. Reflected real people and real life. For anyone who has experience with the heartland of America, this film and its characters ring true. My only disappointment was with the soundtrack; it only occasionally added to the story. Mostly it was a detraction.

A sensitive, caring way to put a spotlight on common concerns of the elderly--sweepstakes scams, physical decline, dementia, loss of dependence, relationships with adult children. Beautiful movie!

This is the best movie I have seen in years. It changed my attitude toward my aging mother. The ending of this movie is Rolls Royce solid gold! To illustrate the regard I have for this film only two other movies I would say changed me as a person - Schindler's List and Forrest Gump.

A funny, sad and touching film. I loved it. All my friends that saw it agree.

Thoroughly enjoyed this story. Poigniant, humerous, completely involved to the very end. More suitable for us older folks. Tried to give 5 stars, but only 1 would show.

Nebraska is full of complicated people marked by flaws and failures, mistakes and regrets; they can be selfish bastards, too. It often feels as though Payne is trying to strip away the cliché that the region is populated exclusively by hardworking, decent hearted types. Full Review
The filmmaker has crammed Nebraska with orneriness, humor, greed, Americana and performances so natural they seem like found objects — especially Dern's, which caps a career of character parts with a delicately nuanced character. Full Review
Bruce Dern gives the performance of his career as the headstrong Woody in the brilliant, wisely observed and wryly funny Nebraska. What stands out is the fullness of the character, with mannerisms and expressions that make him wholly dimensional. Full Review

More than ever Payne allows the humour to rise up gently from his story rather than burst through it. Full Review

The movie is a triumph of an especially satisfying kind. It arrives at a kind of gnarled grace that’s true to this sorry old man and the family he let down in so many ways. Full Review
