Reeling - Rene Rodriguez

Nebraska (R)

In Nebraska, writer-director Alexander Payne (The Descendants, Sideways) returns to his home turf for his smallest, most intimate film yet. It is also one of his most moving. Shot by Phedon Papamichael and filled with wide black-and-white vistas of Midwestern flatlands and desolated farms, the movie has a longing melancholy that leavens the humor — it’s a surprisingly sad, gentle comedy.
