"Nomadland:" a quiet film that rewards the viewer

willing to open his mind to a different lifestyle, to people who choose it, and who, maddeningly, don't fit into neat little pigeonholes.
Frances McDormand is amazing, simply amazing. In a film populated by mostly amateur actors, she matches their genuineness and vulnerability without resorting to those Hollywood standard acting gimmicks, i.e. nervous eye-movements, exaggerated facial expressions, hand gesturing, etc.

What motivates a person voluntarily to choose to live a life devoid of all the materialistic comforts of modern day life? And to do so without comfort of family or close friends? We not only gain insight into the motivations of Fern, but also of a group of other characters, each one interesting and individual.

Cinematography: not, again, the typical Hollywood wide-angle "Wow!" type; rather, the grandeur of the West as you might experience it, its vast expanses of nature, unburdened of visual human impact, its majesty to a large part held in its very quietude and complexity--- like this film.
