        Melancholy yet soul satisfying. McDormand is a treasure as the wandering Fern who refers to herself as "houseless not homeless." Photography is outstanding and Zhao's directing shines.Many Oscars noms I predict. (3-6-21)

        Performances are all outstanding and remarkable as many supporting roles are acted out by actual nomads. Film is definitely a must-watch, but does feel too episodic.

        The duality of 'Nomadland' is what impacts me the most. Although (the reliably-captivating) Frances McDormand's experience is the anchor, Chloe Zhao populates the film with as many perspectives as possible to emphasize that true liberation and spiritual peace of mind are entirely different notions based on who's answering. There's an unshakable beauty to that.

        Nomadland is a surprisingly balanced look at the van living, nomadic life within America. It is hauntingly beautiful, beguiling and poetic while not sugar coating a difficult lifestyle. Frances McDormand has become a legend. From her debut in Blood Simple to her iconic role in Fargo to her latest gritty, down-to-earth performance in Nomadland, she disappears into her roles like a perfectly fit glove. Nomadland is comprised mostly of actual American nomads. If it wasn't for her star factor, McDormand could be mistaken for her real-life counterparts. She is mesmerizing in a few scenes where she flits around in gorgeous natural settings like an eight year old beholding these views for the first time. The third act is a bit jarring tonally as it shifts towards scenes of a "normal" suburban life, which I'm not sure were necessary, but thankfully it was short. Another fascinating real-life character is Bob Wells who apparently is the face of this lifestyle. While not an actor, he is so charismatic and authentic. I plan to check his story out next.
