Nomadland (2021, dir. Chloé Zhao)

A middle-aged widow, now living in a van, takes to the road. Excellent observant drama – with documentary elements – of loss, love, the human impacts of economic failure, and of the melancholy of the highway. Hugely impressive: the best movie of its like since Leave No Trace. Recommended.

Here’s the trailer.
