one of the best films i have seen this year. bruce dern is convinced his life has turned around when he geta a million dollar marketing prize offer. this means a road trip from montana to nebraska stopping off at his old haunts to see if anyone still remembers him. because it is filmed in black and white it gives it something extra. very funny in places and definetly unique.

I have little to add to the other postive reviews. A beautifully-judged, heart-warming film with a great central performance by Bruce Dern. The character is a stubborn curmudgeon, but the writing and the acting make you want him to win through in the end. Some great b/w photography of the barren Mid West with its huge sun- and cloudscapes. Very good supporting cast. Recommended.

This is a film that rewards patience, the quality is there but the story slowly develops. Dern turns in a tour de force as the raddled father on a road trip to claim his illusory $1m. All the acting is top notch and at no time do you get a feeling of "acting". It is one of the few films which will reward several viewings. Drink slowly and you will be rewarded.

This is a great film - an on the road film - which is extremely moving as it portrays the relationships within a family as they allow an old man to pursue his fantasy of winning a fortune. Bleak landscapes - great in black and white. It is slow moving which for some may be a problem but it's worth sitting with as the ending is excellent.

Written with sensitivity, guts & wonderful sense of humour. Benefits from a lack of sentimentallity, hysteria or melodrama that curses so many other so called comedy family drama scenarios. And on top of all that, glorious b/w cinematography that binds it all together with warmth & compassionate humanity.

So refreshing to watch a wonderful, intelligent, soulful film with no Hollywood glamourous forever young actor/actress. Instead, a group of amazingly good oldies and a copule of younger totally ordinay people. The stark B&W, the long roads and the music make the wonderful acting all the more poignant.

A very good film with a superb performance by movie veteran Bruce Dern. Thoroughly recommended for anyone who wants to see a real film and not a piece of modern computer-generated trash full of idiotic comic book heroes. Not exactly a classic by not far off and likely to become cult viewing.

Great performance by Bruce Dern, convinced he has won a major prize from junk mail vouchers. The black and white concentrates the viewers focus on the interaction between the father and son and also the unfolding road trip, which has some good comedic turns. Beautiful and at times very sad.
