Nomadland

Drama


 

Fern gets into her van and begins a life on the road when the only industry in Empire, Nevada closes.

Centred on one character and based on a work of non-fiction, "Nomadland" depicts the situation of many aging workers. Impeccable production values are apparent in every aspect, from the big-sky scenery to the dialogue and soundtrack, creating a movie that is potent and poetic. Each scene is an eloquent expression of a part of the larger political story. The lead actor delivers a deeply empathetic portrayal of a determined woman, making her own choices with an acceptance devoid of resignation. No more, no more, no more, no more.
