(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

NOMADLAND: This is a narrative film in the form of a fictionalized documentary. It uses mostly non-professional actors chosen from real nomads, and the screenwriter worked with each of them to craft their dialogue as authentic. (Frances McDormand and David Strathairn are the only professional actors.) This is a somewhat romanticized view of RV and van owners, with some beautiful Western scenery. This film has a shot for audience awards. Released 02/19/21; available on Hulu. Rating: high +1 (-4 to +4)
