Next week Nebraska, the latest film from director Alexander Payne (Sideways, The Descendants), hits Blu-ray and DVD. If you haven't seen one of 2013's most acclaimed films, you'll soon be able to catch up on it before this year's Academy Awards ceremony, where it could take home one of its six nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. It's about an elderly father (Bruce Dern) who is convinced he's won a lot of money, and the lengths his son (Will Forte) goes to indulge his slightly senile old man on his foolish quest to collect his winnings.
Ahead of the films home video release on February 25, it is our pleasure to premiere a clip from one of several making-of featurettes on the Blu-ray. It features Will Forte and Bruce Dern talking about their characters, and even though it's so short, it does a good job of reflecting the playful, sorrowful tone of the film. It really is an amazing balancing act that Alexander Payne pulled off, and you can get just a sample of it below.
