‘The sheer compassion of Zhao's direction is one of the film's most elemental pleasures, while McDormand is one of those rare actors who can somehow make the act of listening as thrilling as a barnstorming speech.’ ★★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

‘The melancholy lyricism of Nomadland is something truly special, and this quiet marvel of a film deserves your attention.’ ★★★★★ Hannah Strong, Little White Lies
