Film Screening of Nomadland

Tuesday 17th May at 7.30pm (moved from the 10th)

Wootton Courtenay Village Hall

Come to the village hall on the 17th of May to see Nomadland starring Frances McDormand. The screening starts at 7:30pm with doors open at 7pm, tickets £5. The usual refreshments and chairs will be available. The film runs for 1h:47m, with far less crashes, bangs and wallops than the recent 007 screening.

Following the economic collapse of a company town in rural Nevada, Fern (Frances McDormand) packs her van and sets off on the road exploring a life outside of conventional society as a modern-day nomad. The third feature film from director Chloé Zhao, NOMADLAND features real nomads Linda May, Swankie and Bob Wells as Fern’s mentors and comrades in her exploration through the vast landscape of the American West

Winner of multiple awards in 2020, including Oscars for Best Motion Picture, Best Actress and Best Director, plus BAFTAs for Best Film, Best Actress and Best Director.

Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland is an utterly inspired docu-fictional hybrid, like her previous feature The Rider. It is a gentle, compassionate, questioning film about the American soul. With artistry and grace, Zhao folds nonprofessionals into an imagined story built around a cheerful, resourceful, middle-aged woman played by Frances McDormand. This quiet, self-effacing performance may be the best of her career so far.
