13 Movies We're Excited About at the 2013 New York Film Festival

Nebraska

We'll see anything Alexander Payne creates (Election, Sideways and The Descendants are among our favorite films), and Nebraska is no exception. The NYFF spotlight employs beloved Payne-isms by pairing an estranged father (Bruce Dern) and son (Will Forte) on a road trip, the goal of which is picking up a huge cash prize. The duo gets waylaid in the father's hometown, which leads to some interesting breakthroughs (and breakdowns). We love Payne's ability to deftly navigate the intricacies of family, love and addiction with deadpan humor -- we're packing tissues for this one.
