Plot Summary
A woman's life revolves around her seasonal jobs while living in her van and interacting with the people she meets along the way
Director
If you are not familiar with the works and stylings of Director Chloe Zhao you need to know that she is a filmmaker with a style unique to her. She is infatuated with the "wild west," she tells slice-of-life stories of ordinary people, and her films feel like they are part narrative movie and part documentary.

She is a huge name in the independent film world, and rightfully so. Her films are beautiful, emotional, and moving.

Just like Taylor Swift writing a breakup song, Nomadland is right in Chloe Zhao's wheelhouse. And then she went and got Frances McDormand to play the lead. Get the Academy on the line, we've got a contender.

As with most independent films, this is not for everyone. It is a slow-paced film showing the slow-paced life of a typical nomadic person. Most of the drama and conflict is stuff we all deal with on a daily basis.

Your typical movie amplifies the exciting moments and skips over the day-to-day life events. This movie wants you to slow down and enjoy all of those little moments. There is no goal to achieve, there is no crown to be won. The victory is in living each day and being present.

This is a wonderful and beautiful film for those of you that can enjoy the slower pace and the appreciation of the little things. If you are hoping for excitement, entertainment, and escape from real life, you will want to see something else.
