Nomadland

Frances McDormand plays a disenfranchised widow in Nomadland. She takes to  the road in a van after she loses her job in a mine which closes down in 2011. And the Nevada town that depended on the mine crumbles, its zip code binned. Nomadland has clinched several Academy Award nominations, including those for Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Director, Chloe Zhao, the first Chinese woman auteur (with a degree from New York University) to win this recognition.

Children of the Enemy

One of the most heart-tugging aspects about the documentary, Children of the Enemy by Chilean-Swedish auteur Gorki Glaser-Muller that had its world premier at the recent Copenhagen Documentary Film Festival CPH:DOX, is parental love and compassion for a child. This transcends misdemeanours, however serious they may have been. But the movie goes beyond this when it conveys that children need care even if their parents are criminals.

Promising Young Woman

Emerald Fennell’s debut feature, Promising Young Woman, which played at Sundance last year arrives at a time when the #MeToo Movement is at its strongest and vocally loudest point. The film is in the Academy race in a multitude of categories like Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Original Screenplay. Penned by Fennell herself, it is Carey Mulligan’s work all the way, and she gives an oscar worthy performance as Cassandra Thomas.
