2021: SEPTEMBER'S FILM. FRIDAY 17 SEPTEMBER
NOMADLAND (12A) 103 MINUTES
This film won Best Picture at the 2021 Oscars and Frances McDormand won Best Actress for her portrayal of Fern, a woman who leaves home and goes wandering across the American Mid-West after losing everything in the 2008 recession. The film is unusual as it brings together the fictional Fern with real modern-day nomads. The director, Chloe Zhao, has collected several other awards including the Oscar for best director for this quiet, atmospheric film.
