NOMADLAND: Friday 15th October 2021, 8pm
On Friday 15th October we resume the Club’s monthly screening programme with the 2021 Oscar and BAFTA award winning, Nomadland (2020: Cert, 12: 103 mins) starring Frances McDormand.
Following the closure of the main employer in the Nevada town she calls home, an older woman (Fern) packs her van and sets off on the road.
Exploring an unconventional life as a modern-day nomad, Fern discovers a resilience and resourcefulness unlike any she has known before. Along the way, she meets other nomads who become mentors in the vast landscape of the American West. Directed by Chloé Zhao, the film also stars David Strathairn and features real-life nomads Linda May, Swankie and Bob Wells.
