Winner of the Oscar and BAFTA for best film, as well as a host of other awards, Nomadland stars Frances McDormand as Fern who, following the economic collapse of her home town in rural Nevada, packs her van and sets off on the road exploring life outside conventional society as a modern-day nomad. Fern soon discovers a resilience and resourcefulness that bring experiences unlike anything she’s known before. Nomadland is a celebration of humanity, independence and adventure. The film is beautifully shot and empathic, illuminating an America that most of us rarely see.

A BEAUTIFUL DAY

Screening subject to government announcement on May 10

 

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC    (Cert PG)

Dir Marielle Heller      China/USA 2020
109 mins

 

Tom Hanks stars as the much-loved American children’s TV personality Mister Rogers in a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is based on the true story of a friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod.

Matthew Rhys plays the hardbitten, investigative journalist Lloyd Vogel (based on Junod) who is assigned to write a profile of cherished national treasure Fred Rogers.  

Feeling the assignment to be beneath him, Vogel approaches the interview with scepticism, doubting that anyone can truly have such a good nature.  But Rogers’ empathy, kindness and decency soon changes Vogel’s jaded outlook, forcing him to reconcile himself with his own painful past.
