Overwhelmingly sad but life reaffirming at the same time, the film presents yet another example of a role that only Frances McDormand could bring to full fruition. She plays Fern, a woman who many will see as having lost everything. Gone are, her job, her husband, her home, even her town has been reduced to empty domiciles and a nonexistent postcode.
These circumstances have not destroyed her. She has dealt with all the loss by hitting the road and living the life ...

Its quasi-documentary style feeds into this sense of heightened reality.
Like many tales that have come before, those that go ...
