One of the top winners at the 2021 Academy Awards was “Nomadland.” If you haven’t seen the film yet, Hulu is here to help. “Nomadland” premiered in theaters and on Hulu simultaneously on February 19. The movie is also available to buy through video-on-demand services like Prime Video.
The film is based on the book “Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century.” The story centers on a woman, Fern (Frances McDormand), who loses her job due to the recession. As she searches for work on the road in her van, Fern hears stories from other nomads in the American West. The film features supporting actors who are nomads in real life, including Bob Wells, known for his YouTube channel CheapRVliving.
“Nomadland” is directed by Chloé Zhao, who won best director at the 2021 Academy Awards. Zhao’s win made her the first woman of color and second woman ever to win the Oscar for best directing. Her next film will be Marvel’s superhero movie “Eternals” starring Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, and Kumail Nanjiani.
Aside from Zhao’s win, the film also took home the 2021 Oscar for best picture, and McDormand won best actress for her role as Fern. “Nomadland” has a “94% Certified Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and Insider critic Jacob Sarkisian gave the movie an “A-” grade in his full review.
