Nebraska.



I've just watched Nebraska, it was a very touching movie. It's about an old man lives in Billings, Montana, Woody Grant who got a scam letter told him that he won a million dollars, and he needs to take the money on Lincoln, Nebraska. As obvious as it is that the letter was a scam, Woody believes it. His youngest son, David, decided that it might be good to Woody just to left town for maybe a bit of fresh air, so he decided to take Woody to Lincoln.

On the way, they made a stop on Hawthorne, Nebraska, a little town where Woody came from. It became such an experiences for both of them, especially for Dave that he finally got to trace his father former life, before Woody got married. It's kinda answers all the questions behind Woody's unpleasant behaviour.

All in all, it was such a great movie, it shows us all those unexplainable relationship and feelings between people, even families. And not to mention the great visual, tho' it's presented in black and white, which makes it more subtle and make the story sink in deeper, but I still can imagine how amusingly pretty it will be if it was present in colour.

I certainly got mixed feelings watching it. There are some morals you can surely take from the movie.  But among all the things you can get from the movie, one thing I'll remember the most would be "to marry the right person". It shows vividly in the movie how can your choice of spouse can affect your long term happiness, even your whole life. To quotes from one of a friend, "it's the only fate you can choose, you cannot choose whose your parents nor background, but you can always choose you spouse," I think that's true.
