Bob Nelson — a Northwest native, Whidbey Island resident, “Almost Live!” veteran and 2014 Oscar nominee for the screenplay “Nebraska” — has a new film completed, and it’s another father-son tale. “The Confirmation,” which Nelson both wrote and directed, stars Clive Owen as a small-town dad trying to reconnect with his young son; also in the cast are Tim Blake Nelson, Patton Oswalt, Maria Bello, Robert Forster, Matthew Modine and Stephen Tobolowsky. Shot in Vancouver, B.C., the film will be released in theaters and iTunes on March 18.
