Searchlight Pictures has released the first trailer for the drama “Nomadland”. The lead role is played by Frances McDormand, who won an Oscar for Fargo and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
Fern, a 60-year-old woman, is out of work and homeless when the only factory in her small town closes during the economic crisis. The only way out is to load your modest belongings in a van and become one of the modern nomad tribe, traveling from state to state in search of seasonal work.
Land of Nomads made its debut in September at the Venice Film Festival, where it won the Golden Lion main prize. It was directed by Chloe Zhao (“The Rider”).
