Caregivers in the movies

Nebraska: a road trip

Nebraska is a story about an elderly man who hits the road to collect lottery winnings he believes are waiting for him. Bruce Dern plays the sometimes cranky, hard-to-love father. Will Forte, of Saturday Night Live, plays the tolerant son who accompanies his father on what seems like a pointless journey.  In  the end the film is heartwarming and reaffirms that what many caregivers try to do is maintain the dignity of the person they care for. (Contains occasional coarse language.)
