We've been looking forward to watching Nomadland since reading about the film late last year and it exceeded our lofty expectations. 

This compelling look at the modern pioneers who roam the nation while living in their vehicles is far from the glam portrait created by the #vanlife movement. It's gritty and raw and real, yet also beautiful.

We're going to write more about the movie, which just picked up an impressive honor from the Vancouver Film Critics for Best Feature film. Stay turned for a deep dive on this important work of art.
