Independent Film “Nebraska” Based On a Montana Family
I sometimes find myself in a vortex of watching videos on YouTube. A lot of the time, it can be worse than watching the Discovery channel. I stumbled across a movie trailer for an independent film called "Nebraska," and noticed immediately that the plot revolves around a family from Montana.
IMDB describes the plot as
An aging, booze-addled father makes the trip from Montana to Nebraska with his estranged son in order to claim a million-dollar Mega Sweepstakes Marketing prize.
Why doe this interest me so much? A lot of my extended family live in Nebraska and I have made the same trip, hundreds of times, for a lot less money.
Even though I don't plan on rushing out and watching the movie tonight, it must be pretty good.
