Winner of the prestigious People's Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival (a reliable Best Picture Oscar indicator), The Rider director Chloe Zhao returns with her highly-anticipated new film NOMADLAND.

Frances McDormand stars as Fern, an independent woman who spends her life on the road, living out of her modest but cosy van. Travelling across America after the closure of her factory-employer literally wiped her township off the map, Fern makes ends meet by taking seasonal jobs working for online retailers, in roadside kitchens, and supervising caravan parks. It is a solitary life, but a happy one where old friends and fellow travellers weave in and out of her life. One such compatriot, Dave (David Strathairn, Good Night And Good Luck), takes a liking to Fern, beginning a delicate courtship.

A timely drama depicting a visually stunning yet increasingly forgotten part of the United States of America, Zhao's film is considered an Oscar front-runner for both the filmmaker and star. Based on the non-fiction book by Jessica Bruder.
