According to some experts’ opinions, the films that have been nominated for best movie
, intend to raise awareness about social problems and to contribute to a higher acceptance of several forms of social exclusion that they deal with.
The plot of the majority of these nominated movies is about social activism, health disease or representative events in history. In my humble opinion, only one of these films invites the audience to dream and escape from reality: and it is Nomadland.
To start with, this amazing film presents the life of a nomad woman who lives in a van as she decides to travel and to live experiences in order to create fascinating memories. Furthermore, she defines herself as ‘houseless’ and she explains that she adopted this way of living from her father.
This story reminds us of the hippie movement that took place in the 1960s, when people travelled all around the country and, moreover, enjoyed of landscapes, met different people and went through different adventures.
The actress and the spectacular setting attracted the reviewers apart from the millions of viewers that have seen the film. I highly recommend Nomadland because not only is it one of the judges’ favourites, but it also encourages us to experience unique feelings and places. I strongly believe that watching Nomadland is a must.
