Chloé Zhao‘s impeccable Nomadland swept this year’s awards circuit, culminating in Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director as well as Best Actress for Frances McDormand.
Following the closure of a gypsum mine in her rural Nevada hometown, Fern (McDormand) packs her van and sets off on the road. Exploring life outside conventional society as a modern-day nomad, Fern discovers a resilience and resourcefulness that allow her to relish entirely new life experiences.
Amidst the vast, breathtaking landscape of the American West, she meets other nomads who become her mentors and together they celebrate their collective humanity, independence and sense of adventure.
In this story of hope, real-life nomads Linda May, Swankie and Bob Wells provide the perfect, authentic complement to McDormand’s powerful, Oscar-winning performance.
