Nomadland feels like modern Malick, where soul searching imagery and gestures replace stilted philosophical dialogue.

It's like the reverse of a Roma or Happy as Lazzaro; instead of placing a non-actor in a movie, the actor is placed in a real scenario and culture.

Francis is like a ghost, drifting through this world, learning about it, eventually embodying it. Fern is Francis and Francis is Fern. It feels like you can't divorce them, like she isn't acting.

“Fern is the soul of a person who was once whole.” - a friend
