20th Century Women 15

Fri 17 Feb – Thu 2 Mar


Synopsis

★★★★★ - The Telegraph | ★★★★ - The Guardian

It’s been a long time since Mike Mills’ last film, the sweet 2010 comedy-drama Beginners starring Ewan McGregor, but the wait has been worth it.

California, the late 1970s, and bohemian mum Dorothea (Bening) is at a loss on how to deal with her increasingly spiky teenage son Jamie.

Enlisting two other women, her punky photographer tenant Abbie and Jamie’s best friend Julie, the three women - with the occasional input from mellow handyman William (Crudup) - attempt to raise Jamie to be a good man.

Profound, witty and featuring a career best Bening; although set in nostalgia-drenched 1970s, 20th Century Women feels timely, universal and relevant.

Dir: Mike Mills
