"Frances McDormand delivers the performance of her career"
- The Guardian
"Director Chloé Zhao works magic with McDormand’s face and the real world around it, delivering a profound rumination on the impulse to leave society in the dust."
"A gorgeous film that's alternately dreamlike in the way it captures the beauty of this country and grounded in its story about the kind of person we don't usually see in movies."
"Chloé Zhao is back with a masterful work that will lead the awards conversation going forward."
- Movie Network
"Nomadland is a near seamless pairing of filmmaker and actor, the two working in delicate harmony as they trace Fern's loose, bittersweet trajectory."
