REEL TALK: NOMADLAND
March 27, 2021 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
In order to help keep our community healthy, we won’t be showing movies at the Grange until later this year. Instead, the Home Together Spring Film Series has picked three movies you can watch anytime on your own at home and then join a REEL TALK via Zoom. You can listen to a provocative discussion about the film by a special guest and submit your own questions. We can be Home Together with great movies and lively speakers until we can be together in person in front of the big screen at the Grange again.
NOMADLAND streams on Hulu
Nominated Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Director – Academy Awards.
This is the powerful and compassionate story of a resourceful, middle-aged woman who packs her van and sets off to explore life as a modern-day nomad.
“An American classic.” – Time. “One of the great movie experiences of your life.” – Chicago Sun-Times. “I love everything about it.” – RogerEbert.com
