Fern (Frances McDormand) was relatively happy in Empire, Nevada, one of those American small towns built around industry. When the gypsum plant closes, the town of Empire quite literally closes with it. In this nightmare state, Fern’s husband dies, leaving her completely alone. Hitting the road in search of work as a seasonal employee at an Amazon centre, Fern starts living in her van, eventually getting involved with a group of modern nomads, people who sometimes form makeshift communities, but she inevitably ends up alone again, traversing the American landscape. Fern is the unforgettable centre of Chloé Zhao’s masterful “Nomadland”, a movie that finds poetry in the story of a seemingly avarage woman.
On Saturday 27th November 2021 in the Old School, Rural Cinema will be showing “Nomadland”.
