Nomadland is shaping up to be one of 2021’s must-watch movies but where can US and UK fans watch the film? Is Nomadland on Netflix?

With awards season now well underway, films that are in the running for Oscars and other awards are starting to appear on our screens.

However, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, cinema releases have been heavily disrupted meaning that a lot of films are having to find alternate platforms in order to be viewed.

Nomadland is one such example but just where can US and UK film fans watch the Frances McDormand movie? Is Nomadland on Netflix, Amazon Prime or Hulu?

Nomadland was originally supposed to release in cinemas on December 4th, 2020 but the Covid-19 pandemic has led to some alternate arrangements.

The film, which is based on the Jessica Bruder book, Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century, tells the story of Fern (Frances McDormand).

Like many others, Fern lost her job in the 2008 financial crash and the recession that followed.

Now, she lives in a van and spends her life on the road, living as a modern-day nomad, looking for work.
