Nomadland

Nomadland Twelve A

When the gypsum mine in Empire, Nevada closed down in 2011, the place became a ghost town, no jobs, no shops, even the zip code is scrapped. Widowed Fern (Frances McDormand) puts her life in a small van and travels the American West, working odd jobs and sharing experiences with fellow nomads on the fringes of conventional society. Against the odds, the film that swept the board through the 2021 Award season (Best Film, Best Director, Best Leading Actress) is restrained, contemplative, and relies mainly on non-actors. Yet it nails something about the time we live in, a road movie about a forgotten and often ageing underclass from vanishing working-class communities and a personal portrait of quiet but formidable resilience. Best seen on the big screen!

I am a wheelchair user and find it difficult to go to the theatre to enjoy a good film or take in a 'bit of Culture' now and again.Flicks in The Sticks brings a lot of joy to so many people who otherwise would miss out.

Sue Macdonald

Totally loved 'The boy who bit Picasso' It was so heartwarming, funny and made me nearly cry at the end! Totally inspired me and makes me want to make theatre!

Kate Johnston

I heard the Ensemble Sakhioba and want to say what an extraordinary experience it was. A really remarkable performance - thank you for bringing them to Shropshire and I'm glad you achieved a very full audience for them.

We are regular flicks goers and we would be lost without your service. I can't tell you how much your screenings mean to people like us

Living in 'the sticks' limits access to the larger cinemas, consequently Flicks is a lovely way of seeing fairly recent films, without the hassle of planning a journey beforehand. Long may it last.

Lesley and Chris Pimm-Jones

A really enjoyable experience. Friendly atomosphere and heart warming film (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) Would love the chance to do it again. What a good idea for community spirit.

J L-Lakelin

Looking forward to showing films again this season. Like putting on a favourite winter coat!

Cate

I am 86 and I am a big fan of flicks. In the villages its lovely, the proper way to do it, have a glass of wine and a chat, its so much more than just a film

G.S.

Flicks is the lynch pin for most of what goes on in our village

The Film shows give me a reason to leave the house
