You got to give it up to Frances McDormand – she never plays a bad role. And with Nomadland under her belt, expect another Oscar nod for this powerhouse actor.
Directed by Chloé Zhao, Nomadland takes us on an unforgettable journey through the harsh and heartwarming realities of nomadic American workers. The story is about lead character Fern who, after losing everything, embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad doing odd jobs as an Amazon seasonal worker, park ground host, kitchen help and agricultural worker.
Nomadland hits theatres in January 2021 (fingers crossed).
Nomandland is easily be one of my favorite movies of the year.
Don’t miss it.
