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.

2021. 108 mins. Drama. R.

Winner of 2 Golden Globes: Best Director and Best Motion Picture – Drama!

Through these characters, Zhao is able to examine the idea of wide-open frontiers without nostalgia or the need to pathologize the parts of our social structures that are eroding or have failed.

Alison Willmore - New York Magazine/Vulture

“Nomadland” is an existential exploration of the notion of freedom, of life lived on the blurry edges of American society, untethered to traditional ideals of society.

Adam Graham - Detroit News

Zhao’s film is a a poetic Malickian ode to the pioneering nature of the restless American spirit.
