The critically acclaimed drama is currently streaming on Hulu.
The DVD and Blu-ray will include special bonus features like:
- The Forgotten America
- Deleted Scenes- Lunch Interrupted- A Gift from God
- Telluride Premiere Q&A with Frances McDormand and Chloé Zhao
Hopefully, the special features will also include further background details on the incredible real-life non-professional actors that starred in the movie (only McDormand and David Strathairn were professionals). The super sweet and compassionate Linda May deserves her own featurette at least, as well as the heartbreaking and inspiring story of Swankie and her trip to Alaska.
Additionally, it’d be fascinating to learn more about how Zhao and cinematographer Joshua James Richards captured the breathtaking landscapes that made me yearn for post-quarantine days. In his interview with Collider, Richards discussed how he and Zhao used the geography of the land to punctuate emotional moments in Fern’s (McDormand) journey. He certainly convinced me to prioritize knocking the South Dakota Badlands off my bucket list.
Based on the non-fiction book by Jessica Bruder, Nomadland follows the life of modern-day nomad Fern as she explores an atypical life in mid-West America following the economic collapse of her town and death of her husband. Zhao offers audiences a first-hand look at an extraordinary and unconventional community in this powerfully moving story of hope and resilience. And, of course, McDormand gives another career-defining performance that’s truly unmissable. It’s most certainly a must-see movie, and one of Collider’s top 10 films of 2020.
Nomadland is currently available to stream on Hulu and is playing in theaters. The film will be available on digital on April 13, and Blu-ray on April 27.
