Nebraska (2013). Nebraska is directed by Alexander Payne and chosen by Wanweaw and Weawwan Hongvivatana, the twin sisters who are writers, scriptwriters and independent directors of a documentary,“Wish Us Luck” which documented their journey back home to Thailand from England by train.
After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father thinks he’s struck it rich, and wrangles his son into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Shot in black and white across four states, Nebraska tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America.
Nebraska was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, where Bruce Dern won the Best Actor Award. It was also nominated for six Academy Awards; Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Cinematography.
