Overall, Nebraska is a great character piece about a family that you will just fall in love with. It is super well acted and well made, which is why it has lots of awards coming it's way. Whether or not it wins all those awards is less relevant because of the crowded market, but the nominations are worth it. You will walk out of Nebraska will all those warm fuzzies inside and will thus be super happy for the rest of your day. Content-wise, regardless of what the messed up MPAA claims, the movie really should be a light PG-13. There are two uses of the f-word that gave it the R-rating, but that's not a rating it deserves. I could name a hundred or so movies off the top of my head that are only PG-13 that are a lot worse content-wise, so don't let that scare you off. Put Nebraska on your must see list! I give it a very strong 9 out of 10.
