I loved it!Yes, the storyline moves along a bit slower than most movies out there, but it portrays a slowness that is common in small towns and is emphasized by being filmed in black and white. Anyone who is familiar with small towns and aging (not perfect) parents will appreciate this movie. I found it to be very touching and loved the ending!

I’m not even going to rate this. It would be biased. I just am not a fan of academy movies. Nebraska is a classic case.I just don’t get it. From the opening scene, it’s boring and drab. I’m hearing Oscar performances from Bruce Dern and June Squibb. Seriously? I’m at a loss. Dern’s character was a feeble old man, with dementia, constantly staring off into the distance with a blank look. I saw his say maybe 10 words. Acting? June Squibb I thought was cringe inducing. I was just dumbfounded this boring tripe is considered a masterpiece.I gave it 1/2 hour before I just couldn’t take it anymore.No rating… because I don’t particularly care for what the academy calls great work.
