Movies are back at Capilano Library! On February 8, join us for a screening of Nomadland
 
Nomadland is writer-director Chloé Zhao's intimate drama starring Frances McDormand as Fern, an unemployed widow who joins a growing movement of older adults who live out of cars, vans, and RVs and do seasonal work across the country. It has mature themes about loneliness, financial instability, and restlessness, but it's also uplifting and hopeful. There's a beauty in the traveling and a sense that hard work should be valued, whatever that work might look like. Winner of three Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Leading Actress, Best Director.
