Find out where to watch Nomadland in Canada, starring Frances McDormand and award-winning director Chloé Zhao.

Nomadland (2020) has won award after award since its premier at the Venice Film Festival, sweeping the movie industry's highest honours including Best Motion Picture - Drama and Best Director at the Golden Globes and Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Director at the 93rd Academy Awards (The Oscars 🏆).

The film was adapted from Jessica Bruder's 2017 book, Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century, and follows Fern (Frances McDormand), a woman in her 60s working at an Amazon warehouse, as she embarks on a nomadic van-dwelling journey across the US.

But does Nomadland deserve all the Hollywood awards and critical acclaim?

There's only one way to find out and that's to watch it yourself!

(personally, I watched it on Hulu yesterday using a VPN)

Where Can I Watch Nomadland in Canada?

Where to Watch Nomadland in Canada

Canadians can watch Nomadland (2020) with an active Disney+ subscription through Star, the company's international brand with 150+ TV shows and 500+ movies.

Star is basically an international version of Hulu and it's included for free with Disney+.

However, you may need to adjust the parental controls to 18+ in order to watch Star as the content is aimed towards an adult audience.

Alternatively, you can watch Nomadland on Hulu using a VPN (this is what I did). A VPN lets you connect to a US IP address so that you can watch Hulu like a US customer.

This is helpful if you don't want to subscribe to Disney+ (which stopped offering free trials) as you can still get Hulu for free with a 30-day free trial.

Hulu also has the cheapest subscription plan at US $5.99 per month (with ads, however) and includes Hulu originals like the award-winning show The Handmaid's Tale.

Method 1: Watch Nomadland on Disney+ Star

  1. Go to Disney Plus in your browser or open the Disney+ app on your device.
  2. Click the Star tile on the Disney+ homepage.
  3. Search for Nomadland (it's on the Star homepage as well).
  4. Butter your popcorn and press play!

Method 2: Watch Nomadland on Hulu using a VPN

  1. Sign up for a VPN that can unblock Hulu. I highly recommend Hotspot Shield.
  2. Activate your VPN and sign up for Hulu (you'll need to use a US credit card).
  3. Search for Nomadland (it's on the Hulu homepage as well).
  4. Butter your popcorn and press play!
