One Final Trailer for Chloe Zhao's 'Nomadland' Opening This Month
"I maybe spent too much of my life just remembering." Searchlight Pictures has debuted one final trailer for Nomadland, which is now opening in theaters in the US in a few weeks (here's the teaser & other trailer). It will also launch on Hulu the same day for everyone to watch. 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. It 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. This is currently the Best Picture frontrunner for the Oscars from 2020, and it could end up winning (deserves it). If you haven't seen it yet, we encourage viewing this when it opens this month.
Here's the second full trailer (+ new poster) for Chloe Zhao's Nomadland, from Searchlight's YouTube:
