    I was researching to write a screenplay about a homeless man and, through some internet searches, came across this production by Matthew Eggers and Stephen Zinn. It was no longer being distributed so I contacted them personally to ask what it would take to receive "Nomad." They graciously mailed me a copy and I watched it this afternoon. For whatever reason, the main character's (Jack played by Matthew Pinkerton) voice is replaced by a voice-over(Stuart Sanks). That distracts a bit from the main story. However, the film exhibits a low-budget elegance that will appeal to the genuinely artistic. Both primary characters, Jack and Lucy (Amanda Revell), as well as the dialogues, are textured and well-executed. The film is just what I believe a low-budget film should be. It's meaningful, raw, and original. Go through the trouble of getting a copy of this film. It is well worth the effort.
