'Nebraska' (11/22)

Bruce Dern, 77, delivers a career-capping performance as Woody, a boozy, brain- addled geezer hoping to cash in on a bogus sweepstakes prize. Shooting in black-and-white, director Alexander Payne gives a muscular poetry to this road movie as Woody and his younger son (an outstanding Will Forte) ignore the hilarious insults of Woody's wife (supreme scene-stealer June Squibb) and drive to Omaha to claim the cash. In this movie without an ounce of bullshit in it, nothing and everything happens.
