It took me three tries to finally watched it in its entirety. It was very depressing to watch.

I think the movie did a good job showing the sub-culture they portrayed. That group is growing, but many other groups are also growing. Families working on the road. Families moving to places without local employment, etc. The RV industry is having a banner year.

I haven't seen the movie yet since I don't have HULU but I hope to find it somewhere to watch...eventually.

I just watched this movie and thought it did a great portrayal of the nomads I have met. It was somber movie - but that was the point. Older people who have lost everything is a somber subject - but those same people who have found a way to survive/recover/thrive and that's worth celebrating.

One of the underlying themes that everyone should recognize is the culture of the RV community. Never had a problem in any campground that wasn't fixed by a fellow camper.

Just saw it on Amazon.. not free since it's new and just won an Oscar. Liked it a lot. A bit slow, but it's not supposed to be an action movie. Anyway, it held my interest all the way.

I started to watch Nomadland but just couldn't get into it and turned it off. Maybe will try again later.


I did the same thing when it was on Netflix. I may try again when it comes back but won't pursue it. I generally don't watch movies to be depressed.

Ed and I watched it last night - he said it was boring - but he wasn't paying close attention to it, either. I LOVED it - I saw a strong and quietly-adventurous woman who was willing to walk away from safety/security to travel that road-less-traveled.

I also post on van conversion forums (having converted a cargo van) and I sure hope all the starry-eyed people who see the "mini-house-like van parked near the scenic view" - watch this movie to see the un-glamorous side of living in a van, because Nomadland shows that can be starkly grim, including pooping in a bucket. I'm reading way too many folks buying ancient, high-mileage vans and no clue how to do a conversion..... and then they plan to see the USA....
