"Frances McDormand explores the vast landscape of the American West, in Chloé Zhao's wise and intimate portrayal of life as a modern-day nomad. (...) Adapting Jessica Bruder's non-fiction book, Zhao writes, directs, and edits with impressively crisp focus. (...) Nomadland arrives between Zhao's award-winning prairie drama The Rider and her upcoming Marvel superhero movie, The Eternals. It's yet more evidence of what makes her a singular filmmaker and one of the most important new voices in American cinema. Zhao seeks out characters living in the margins of society and shows us why these seeming outcasts define America, and movies, more than the big-screen protagonists we're used to." - TIFF
