《内布拉斯加》(Nebraska)以明快的黑白片形式拍摄，通过一次穿越蒙大拿和内布拉斯加的旅行揭示了由布鲁斯?邓恩(Bruce Dern)扮演的易怒老头伍迪?格兰特(Woody Grant)的内心世界。（这部电影的摄影师芬顿?帕帕迈可(Phedon Papamichael)也参演了影片。）编剧鲍勃?尼尔森(Bob Nelson)炮制了优秀的剧本，而亚历山大?佩恩(Alexander Payne)的导演工作也无懈可击。这部影片讲述的是伍迪和儿子威尔(Will)关系不佳、最终和解的过程；扮演儿子的威尔?福特(Will Forte)极度平和的表演征服了观众。这里是很少在银幕上得到刻画的美国心脏地带，带着幽默和几乎可以感知的深情。
