Film Discussion: Two Women's Stories of the Great Recession

Our movie discussion will focus on the impact of the Great Recession on the lives of two women.

Wendy & Lucy (2008) describes the experiences of an unemployed homeless woman. She encounters difficulties in Oregon  while on  a cross-country journey with her dog while in search of work.

Nomadland ( 2020), starring Frances McDormand, has been touted as a possible 2021 Oscar winner.  It is the story of  a woman who, after losing everything she has, embarks on a journey through the American West living as a van-dwelling nomad.
