In Nomadland,  we find ourselves just after an economic recession, Fern (McDormand) has lost everything. She decides to pack what possessions she has left leaving conventional life and head into the American West to live an nomadic life.

This trailer certainly showcases the film’s tone and how profound as well as emotive the film is going to be. Zhao is considered one of the best, independent/arthouse directors around and no wonder  Marvel picked her up to direct Eternals. This film is a reminder she hasn’t forgotten her arthouse roots….
