“After losing everything in the Great Recession, a woman embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad.”
By Kevin Muller
Nomadland stars Frances McDormand, in preparation for her role as Fern, lived out the nomad lifestyle for a few months prior to filming. The goal was to mimic the authentic nature of the 2017 non-fiction novel written by Jessica Bruder, which presented the lives of Americans who live their lives on the road. McDormand, who is also a producer on the project, wanted a director to bring out the beauty of the book, so she grabbed relatively newcomer Chloe Zhao, to bring levity and respectfulness to a lifestyle most of us would never be able to endure. Does it all work, or is it a bore?
