Nomadland. The grand winner of the 2021 Oscars, Nomadland will hit theaters in France on June 9, 2021. Is this touching drama inspired by a true story?
[Mis à jour le 9 juin 2021 à 9h33] The Best Film of Oscar 2021 is finally to be discovered by the French public. Nomadland by Chloe Zhao was released in theaters in France on June 9, 2021. The touching drama also won Best Director and Best Actress for Frances McDormand at the Festival of Best American Cinema last April. Strong and dynamic, the painting of life in contrast to society, will not fail to shake the nomadic masses.
Nomadic American nomads are distinguished by their semi-documentary approach to life, breaking with society’s norms after life accidents. It should come as no surprise that Chloe Zhao’s latest achievement isn’t inspired by a true story. If the character of Fern (Frances McDormand) does indeed originate from the imagination of the screenwriters, then reality often catches up with fiction. Actually, Nomadland is inspired by Jessica Bruder’s book Nomad: Saving America in the Twenty-First Century, which lists the testimony of several relatively elderly people who adopted a nomadic lifestyle after the 2008 economic crisis. In addition, it also features figures crossed in his journey by the real nomad Fern, who for many had never played in the movies before.
abstract – Fern worked in a working-class town in Nevada that had to bear the brunt of the crisis. Then she decides to walk on the road with her van and live like a nomad breaking the norms of modern society.
Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress… These three particularly popular 2021 Oscars were all won by Nomadland, a film by Chloe Zhao, who at the same time became the first Asian-American director to be recognized in the film . .
