Winner of the Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Director Oscar and BAFTA awards in 2021
Nomadland is a fascinating celebration of humanity, independence and adventure starring Frances McDormand who brings Fern to life in a powerful awards winning performance.
Following the closure of a gypsum mine in the rural Nevada town she calls home, Fern packs her van and sets off on the road. Exploring life outside conventional society as a modern-day nomad, Fern soon discovers a resilience and resourcefulness that present her with experiences unlike any she’s known before. Along the way in this story of hope, she meets other nomads who become mentors in her life amidst the vast, sometimes breath-taking landscape of the American West.
Based on the book by Jessica Bruder, with a screenplay from and directed by acclaimed director Chloe Zhao, Nomadland features real-life nomads Linda May, Swankie and Bob Wells.
