The film, which explores life after the 2008 financial crisis, is now on Hulu.
Chloé Zhao’s critically acclaimed Nomadland got its due at the 78th Golden Globes ceremony, ultimately earning two awards: best picture drama and best director. Zhao, who became the first Asian woman producer and the first woman of color to win in the categories, was also nominated for best motion picture screenplay. Her lead star, Frances McDormand, additionally earned a nomination for best actress in a drama.
The film, adapted from the book Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century by Jessica Bruder, follows the life of McDormand’s character after the 2008 Great Recession. The 60-something widow treks across the American West, living in her van and looking for work while on the road.
“Now, this is why I fell in love with making movies, and telling stories, because it gives us a chance to laugh and cry together, and it gives us a chance to learn from each other and have more compassion for each other,” said Zhao during one of her Golden Globe acceptance speeches. “So thank you, everyone, who made it possible for me to do one I love.”
Nomadland was released in select IMAX theaters on January 29, followed by a release in regular theaters and drive-ins, per Variety. Still, as we continue to field public health guidelines amid the COVID-19 pandemic, you may want to watch the award-winning film straight from home.
