Nomadland ★★★★½

"Frances [McDormand], can I just say, I love you. You are the only person in this room that I would save in a fire" - Amy Poehler at the Golden Globes

I was honestly floored by this film. McDormand, is, as expected, perfect (and I struggle to think of another "movie star" who could be so convincing in the role), Chloé Zhao is rad as fuck, which I felt after I watched The Rider (and also shoots to the top of the “must see her next film” list) and the score by Ludovico Einaudi is elegant and in wonderful support of the material.

It's easy to say that this is such a 2020 film, with its emphasis on community and connection between humans and our realisation as to what we hold important, despite our capitalist overlords, but this is a forever film, one that is bound to resonate in 3 years or 300 years.

I was constantly tearing up during this film. It's Oh, and Amy Poehler was correct.
