(2020) (Frances McDormand, David Strathairn) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: Following the death of her husband and the abandonment of their one-company town, a woman decides to become a nomad and travels around part of the country in her old van.
It's 2011 and the gypsum plant in Empire, Nevada has closed, resulting in the small one-company town being abandoned. With her husband having previously died, Fern (FRANCES McDORMAND), now lives out of her van and works seasonal and odd jobs to earn enough money to pay for gas and food.
She ends up learning how to be a nomad from Bob Wells (BOB WELLS) and fellow nomads such as her new friends Linda May (LINDA MAY) and Swankie (SWANKIE). She also meets Dave (DAVID STRATHAIRN), another nomad who takes a liking to her, although her feelings for him don't extend beyond occasionally bumping into him in various locales. As Fern continues her journeys, she must come to grips with her past and her future.
