“Frances McDormand wows (again) in the earthbound yet expansive ‘Nomadland’” – Washington Post

“It suggests that the road less traveled can yield joy as well as sorrow and that it can fulfill a person’s need for both solitude and community.” – NPR


Following the economic collapse of a company town in rural Nevada, Fern (Frances McDormand) packs her van and sets off on the road exploring a life outside of conventional society as a modern-day nomad. The third feature film from director Chloé Zhao, NOMADLAND features real nomads Linda May, Swankie and Bob Wells as Fern’s mentors and comrades in her exploration through the vast landscape of the American West.
