Nomadland ★★★★½

It is always a joy to watch Frances on the big, err, home screen. She is always in tune with those around her and pretty much is Fern in real life. Loved that about her. Her smiles, directness, honesty, and absolute dedication to the film shows in each scene she is in. In the worst of times and the best of times, Nomadland is about how the middle of the country is and reacts to the larger capitalist society. The long shots of the gorgeous landscapes, sea, and rocky landscape are really something else, and are a love letter to those whom we don't engage with on a regular basis. Each part of the film was back and forth between the van, the outdoors, and just putting up with the conditions that were given. I loved the entire supporting cast who made this movie always hugging the line of documentary or fiction. Epic musical score, epic cinematography that just blew my mind. Amazing still shots of theaters, homes, and people. Just really felt that you were there with Fern. I loved this.
