Nomadland is a 2020 neo-Western drama based on Jessica Bruder’s 2017 non-fiction book Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century. The film premiered on 11th September 2020 at the Venice Film Festival. It gained widespread acclaim, winning the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival and being regarded by most critics as one of the best films of 2020.
The film is expected to take home a slate of awards. It has received four Golden Globe Awards and is set to receive more nominations. The film’s star, Frances McDormand, plays a woman who leaves her home to seek employment in the American West.
Is Nomadland streaming on Netflix?
Nomadland is not streaming on Netflix. It is also unlikely that Nomadland will come to Netflix any time soon.
The film’s distribution rights lie with Searchlight Pictures, a sister company of 20th Century Studios. The Walt Disney Company owns 20th Century Studios and two streaming powerhouses: Hulu and Disney+.
Therefore, films distributed by Searchlight Pictures will likely appear on Hulu and Disney+ before the company considers handing streaming rights to a rival company. Considering the increasing rivalries between streaming services, it is unlikely that Netflix will acquire streaming rights to Nomadland.
Where is Nomadland available for streaming?
Nomadland is currently available for streaming on Hulu. It has been available on the streaming platform since 19th February 2021.
At the moment, subscribers of other streaming services don’t have access to Nomadland. However, it is likely that Nomadland will appear on Disney+.
