Nomadland (12A)

F Rated Film
Friday 4th June 2021 - Thursday 10th June 2021

Dir. Chloe Zhao, US, 2020, 107 mins. Cast. Frances McDormand, David Strathairn, Linda May, Swankie.
As Frances McDormand said when winning her Best Actress Oscar, see this beautiful, lyrical film on the big screen! Reeling from the early death of her beloved husband and the loss of their home, Fern lives in a kitted-out van, travelling from town to town and picking up short-term seasonal work where she can get it. It’s a premise built on the experiences of America’s modern-day nomads. The film is populated with intimate and compassionate studies of real people playing versions of themselves, such as Fern’s compatriots on the road, Linda, Swankie and Bob, as well as a precious community that has grown out of the ruins of the country’s brutal service economy. Alongside them, McDormand delivers a quietly breathtaking performance – an angular, sympathetic portrait of an older woman choosing a life of relative freedom, whatever the pains and challenges that entails. And Zhao’s regular collaborator, cinematographer Joshua James Richards, exquisitely captures the expansive open landscapes of the Western United States.

If you see one film this month, make it this one.
