Interview: Alexander Payne on Nebraska
There are few surer signs of awards season than the imminent release of a new Alexander Payne movie. The writer-director of Election, About Schmidt, Sideways and The Descendants is a darling of the year-end circuit, picking up two screenplay Oscars and guiding many of his performers to acting nods along the way. Payne's latest, the alternately droll and sentimental father-son road trip Nebraska, has already earned star Bruce Dern the best actor prize at this year's Cannes festival and should factor among the accolades distributed in the coming months. It's a stripped-back performance of quiet detail from Dern, framed by Payne's stark, almost haunted black-and-white lensing of a disappearing America. Here, the director chats to RT about the film.
