Director Alexander Payne takes us through the lengthy process of bringing the Best Picture contender Nebraska to the silver screen with our exclusive featurette for the Blu-ray and DVD release on February 25. The filmmaker reveals he was first approached with Bob Nelson's Oscar-nominated script by producers Ron Yerxa and Albert Berger while he was in post-production on his 2004 comedy Sideways, atlhough he didn't realize, at the time, it would take so long to get this movie made. Take a look at our exclusive featurette, which includes behind-the-scenes footage.
From Academy Award-winner Alexander Payne, the director of Sideways and The Descendants, comes the captivating story of a father (Bruce Dern) and his adult son (Will Forte) who embark on a journey to claim a million-dollar prize; what begins as a fool's errand becomes a search for the road to redemption. Screen legend Bruce Dern gives "a career crowning performance" (Scott Foundas, Variety) that has earned him widespread critical praise, as well as the Best Actor award from the Cannes Film Festival, the National Board of Review and the Los Angeles Film Critics and Oscar, Golden Globe, SAG, Spirit and Satellite award nominations. Nebraska also features an outstanding supporting cast including Stacy Keach, Oscar nominee June Squibb and a "revelatory" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) Will Forte.
