Hundreds Get First Look at Movie "Nebraska"
NORFOLK-Hundreds of people crowded into the Divots Conference Center last night to rub elbows with the likes of director Alexander Payne and actors Bruce Dern, Will Forte and June Squibb as Norfolk celebrated the local premiere of Payne’s latest film, Nebraska.Screen writer Bob Nelson, whose family lives in the Wausa and Hartington area, named his script “Nebraska.” Payne says he really wanted to change the title – but couldn’t come up with anything that worked as well. The film was shot last fall in 13 Nebraska communities, including Plainview, Wakefield and Stanton. Actor Bruce Dern says he found area citizens friendly and welcoming. “Nebraska” was shown to an exclusive crowd last night at the Norfolk 7 Theatres. It will be open for a regular schedule in the local theatre later this year.
