Last year wasn’t a great year for the cinema. The
coronavirus pandemic badly affected cinema goers and production
companies alike. Nevertheless, one film did stand out above the rest and
took 3 Oscars for best film, best director (Chloe Zhao) and best actress
Nomadland is set in rural Nevada where Fern (Frances McDormand) decides
to pack up her belongings in a van and drive away from a small company
town where her deceased husband had worked for many happy years before
the factory was forced to close down.
Fern is childless and has no other family in the area, so she drives off
in her van and becomes a modern-day nomad like so many other working-class
Americans who have been affected by the shifting sands of an
Fern joins a strange, but welcoming, community of nomads who live
outside conventional society and work when and wherever they can in
temporary, and often menial, low-paying jobs including cleaning toilets
on a campsite and packing boxes at Amazon leading up to Christmas.
Fern comes into contact with kind, loving nomads who support her and
help her to adjust. In fact, three of the nomads in the film are not
actors. They’re actual nomads who live this lifestyle on the road.
If your idea of a good film is action and special effects, go and see
Tenet. However, if you want to see superb acting, directing, beautiful
cinematography and a script that makes you reflect on society and on
life, you won’t do better than Nomadland.
