McDormand's camper van pulls up to UK/ROI cinemas in February.

Following her acclaimed depictions of rural American working class life Songs My Brothers Taught Me and The Rider, filmmaker Chloé Zhao is hitting the road with Frances McDormand for Nomadland.

Inspired by journalist Jessica Bruder’s 2017 non-fiction book 'Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century', Nomadland sees McDormand play an aging woman forced to live a nomadic life in her van following the economic collapse of her Nevada company town. As with Zhao's previous films, Nomadland features amateur performers playing versions of themselves.

Nomadland is in UK/ROI cinemas from February 19th.

Check out the new trailer and poster below.


The official synopsis reads:

Nomadland follows Fern (Frances McDormand), a woman who, after the economic collapse of a company town in rural Nevada, packs her van and sets off on the road exploring a life outside of conventional society as a modern-day nomad. The film 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.
