Bruce Dern stars in a road trip movie, shot in black and white, as a befuddled old man convinced he has won a million dollars and only has to get to Lincoln to claim it from the junk mail marketing office that sent the prize certificate. He gets his son, who is understandably cynical, to drive him there. The 77 year old Dern is superb as a confused alcoholic with Will Forte having to come to terms with his father approaching the end of a largely wasted life. An American road movie for the post-crash age.
