Full Trailer for Chloe Zhao's 'Nomadland' with Frances McDormand
"I think Fern's part of an American tradition." Searchlight Pictures has revealed a full-length official trailer for Nomadland, the award-winning wonderful film from Chloe Zhao that picked up the Golden Lion at this year's Venice Film Festival. The third feature from acclaimed filmmaker Chloe Zhao, the film follows a woman in her sixties who, after losing everything in the "Great Recession", embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad. A story about our changing times. Starring Frances McDormand. Nomadland also 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. I wrote in my glowing review that Nomadland "is the most soulful film of the year." Highly recommended viewing.
