20th Century Women

Academy Award-nominee for Best Original Screenplay
Nominated for two Golden Globes: Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical (Annette Bening)

In 1979 Santa Barbara, Calif., Dorothea Fields (Annette Bening) is a determined single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie, at a moment brimming with cultural change and rebellion. Dorothea enlists the help of two younger women — Abbie (Greta Gerwig), a free-spirited punk artist living as a boarder in the Fields’ home and Julie (Elle Fanning), a savvy and provocative teenage neighbor — to help with Jamie’s upbringing.

USA. 2017, 118 minutes, Rated R, Directed by Mike Mills
