Nomadland Exposes the Middle-Class Rip-Off
Thom plus logo Forty years of Reaganism and trickle-down economics have left America pockmarked with refugee camps and people hanging onto life by their fingernails.

The award-winning movie Nomadland is every bit as brilliant as the reviews, but it's also, for this era, a hell of a wake-up call.

Chloé Zhao's film is a brilliant drama centered around a central character named Fern (with a stellar performance by Frances McDormand), struggling to survive after the loss of her husband, job and home.

In addition to it being a great movie, at an only slightly deeper level it raises vitally important questions about how we've structured our economy and social safety net in America.
