Episode #93: Nomadland
Ladies & Gentlemen. Welcome to The Envelope Podcast. Here on The Envelope, we discuss & review every Best Picture Winner in the Academy Awards History.
On this episode, we discuss the ninety-third Best Picture Winner: “NOMADLAND”
“Nomadland” is based on the 2017 nonfiction book “Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century” by Jessica Bruder. The film follows Fern, a woman in her sixties who, after losing everything in the Great Recession, embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad. The film is a poetic character study on the forgotten and downtrodden that captures the restlessness left in the wake of the Great Recession. Directed by Chloé Zhao, the film stars Frances McDormand as Fern and David Strathairn as Dave.
