Nomadland IMAX release

A few days ago, we learned that Searchlight Pictures plans to put Chloé Zhao‘s poetic drama Nomadland into IMAX theaters at the end of this month. Now a cool Nomadland IMAX poster has arrived to promote that large-format theatrical release – although, sadly, we can’t recommend seeing the movie in that format right now because of the pandemic is still raging in the United States.

nomadland review new

“I’m not homeless. I’m houseless.” So says Fern (Frances McDormand), the nomad at the center of Chloé Zhao‘s achingly beautiful Nomadland. Fern lives in her van now, but once, she was a resident of Empire, Nevada – a town that simply ceased to exist when its main economical source, a gypsum plant, shuttered. Now Fern drifts about, doing seasonal work for Amazon and seemingly always on the move. Always searching. For what? Home? Not exactly. Really, she’s in search of America.
