AARP members are invited to a FREE AARP “Movies for Grownups” pre-release screening of Nebraska, a new film starring actors Bruce Dern and Will Forte.

After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks he’s struck it rich, and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Shot in black and white across four states, Nebraska tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America.

Bruce Dern won “Best Actor” for Nebraska at the Cannes International Film Festival in May. The film has been nominated for other awards, including the Palme d’Or, the top honor at Cannes; the Art Cinema Award, at the Hamburg Film Festival 2013; and the Grand Marnier Fellowship Award, at the New York Film Festival 2013.

The film was directed by Alexander Payne, who directed and won an Academy Award for The Descendants with George Clooney (2011), and Sideways with Paul Giamatti (2004), which garnered both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Payne for Best Screenplay. Nebraska is rated R for some language, and opens in theatres Nov. 22.

The FREE pre-release screening of “Nebraska” takes place on Monday, Nov. 4, at 7 p.m., at the AMC Loews Boston Common, 175 Tremont St., Boston, MA 02111.

Tickets are limited, so act now and reserve your seat online.
