Nomandland -- Well of course Frances McDormand kills it again in this almost non-movie movie. As some of you may know the "plot point" in most movies comes around the 20 minute mark. Here it never shows up as our "nomad" wanders the west in her van in which she lives. The movie just goes from episode to episode and McDormand, who's in every scene, makes it hard to stop watching.
Beautifully shot. Perfectly paced. Honest, powerful writing. And poignant, humane performances by everyone. You mention McDormand, who of course is quietly brilliant. But the real life nomads are also wonderful, including Bob Wells, Swankie and Linda May.
I wonder if you have to be at a certain age or place in life to fully connect with this film, but after what we’ve gone through over the last year, I would think that people of all ages and experiences would have the same profound movie experience that I had.
