  •  Times of India -Reagan Gavin Rasquinha Rating-8
Nebraska begins with a stooped Woody Grant (Dern) shuffling along a pavement. His son David (Forte) finds him and takes him home, where we are introduced to David's mother Kate (Squibb) who is quite the tough-talking old lady of the house. It doesn't take them long to figure out

‘Fresh’ might be the last word to come to mind when describing Nebraska, a black-and-white film with a 77-year-old protagonist. However, calling this film anything other than a breath of fresh air would be unfair.Nebraska follows Woody Grant (Bruce Dern), a 77-year-old man who believes he’s won

  •  India Today -Rohit Khilnani Rating-8
Nebraska is a sweet comedy-drama directed by the very talented Alexander Payne, worth mentioning here is that it's shot in black and white. This film is about relationships, mainly about an old man named Woody (Bruce Dern) who thinks he has won a lottery and will soon be a millionaire.

  •  The Front Row -Anupama Chopra Rating-8
Nebraska is so many things at once that you wonder how director Alexander Payne and writer Bob Nelson, managed to fit it all into a story so spare. A 75-year-old man living in Midwest America gets one of those standard form letters saying he is the winner of a million dollar sweepstakes.

Uncle Albert likes to watch the road.He takes a weatherbeaten deckchair and kicks back after meals, sitting by the side of the road to watch cars go by.It doesn’t seem that absurd a pastime for a man so grey and wrinkled he predates the television set,

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-8
To make a film whose lead actor is whiskery and doddery and just plain old so engrossing is an art. Alexander Payne brings all his craft to bear upon ‘Nebraska’, but at no point does he make us aware of it. Which is why the film works so well, in its pristine black and white frames,
