'Nomadland' director Chloé Zhao describes Frances McDormand's method approach

Frances McDormand is back with another stellar performance in Nomadland. The film's director, Chloé Zhao, recently spoke with Yahoo Entertainment about how McDormand approached the role of Fern, a woman who lives out of her van and travels around the country working low-paying odd jobs.

"We were in the hotel lobby. And then I said, 'Where's she going?'" I think she was sleeping in the van that night in the parking lot," Zhao recalled.

She added, "So she was living it, you know, she was really living the life and she's in her sixties. You know, it wasn't easy."
