Council of Elders

Nebraska movie

Movie showing: NEBRASKA

May 5, 1:00 PM at UUS:E

The Council of Elders will host a viewing and discussion of this award-winning film on Thursday, May 5, at 1:00. Here is a brief synopsis: Cantankerous old Woody Grant can barely walk down the street of his home in Billings, MN, without stopping for a drink. So when Woody receives a sweepstakes notice in the mail and insists on making a 750-mile trip to Lincoln, NE to collect his prize, it falls to his baffled son David to accompany him. During a stop in their Nebraska hometown, word gets out about Woody’s fortune, first making him a hero, then later, the target of predatory people.

This film is rated R for some gratuitous language and sexual references. It is not suitable for most children.
