Do you want to know what it’s like to live in the Midwest?  See the movies Nebraska and About Schmidt.  Parts are hyperbolically funny, parts are moving, and both have a Midwestern atmosphere.

Coincidentally, both feature June Squibb.  She was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Nebraska” as Bruce Dern’s aged wife, and also appeared as Jack Nicholson’s  wife in About Schmidt, which begins in Omaha, Nebraska.

Here is the trailer for Nebraska:

Here is the trailer for About Schmidt.

  1. Tom, I know so little about movies that I didn’t realize Alexander Payne had directed both of them. It turns out he’s from Omaha, a city I very much like. I noted that June Squibb played similar roles in both movies. Now I understand why. Thanks for the comment!
