'A 'ONE THOUSAND MILE' TRIP OF DISCOVERY',
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nebraska [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
'David Grant's' aging father 'Woody' believes he has won a Million Dollars,
he's had a voucher in the post and wants to go to 'Lincoln, Nebraska' to
collect his winnings, even though his son try's to tell him the voucher isn't
'a winning ticket'
'Woody' an alcoholic often wanders, son 'David' is often called away from
work to collect his father.
After some consideration, 'David' agrees to take the 1000 mile journey from
'Billings, Montana' where they live to 'Lincoln' if only to prove to his father
that it's a wild goose chase.
The trip takes them to 'Hawthorn' where 'Woody' had once lived, they have
relatives living there, also old friends of 'Woody's'
The '';Home-coming' does expose the frailties of family and friendship when
'Woody's' supposed good fortune becomes public knowledge.
However there is 200 miles still to travel before closure can be realized on
The trip though it exposes what greed does to so called family members and
friends thus bringing home a few truths, it is also a journey of discovery between
father and son.
Filmed in 'black and white' it's a story of reflections, memories, a little humour,
and perhaps a little heart-warming.
