    Synopsis


    20th Century Women
    During the summer of 1979, at the sunset of the Carter presidency, a Santa Barbara single mom and boardinghouse landlord (Annette Bening) decides that the best way she can parent her teenage son (Lucas Jade Zumann) is to enlist her young tenants -- a quirky punk photographer (Greta Gerwig), a mellow handyman (Billy Crudup), and her son's shrewd but troubled best friend (Elle Fanning) -- to serve as his role models in a rapidly changing world. Written and directed by Mike Mills (Beginners). ~ Violet LeVoit, Rovi

      A movie about clumsy relationships

      Set in the 1970s, an aging, single mom (Annette Bening) sees the need to help her teenage son grow up with a stronger sense of manliness. She feels inadequate for the job; so she recruits 2 acquaintances, a promiscuous teen age girl and an starving artist type of young woman to help. The son has strong romantic feelings for the teenage girl, who rather uncharacteristically can only relate to the boy as a platonic friend. The impoverished, artistic young woman hasn't put her own life in order, much less help anybody else. This is a gentle comedy about clueless but well meaning women and a girl offering help to a boy about his masculinity. They offer no real help beyond wanting to offer help, but that seems to be enough for good results.

      As a 25-year-old multiracial male, a film centered around three white women of varying ages in the end of the 70's may not seem like it's up my alley, but this film moved me beyond description. I have a difficult time summarizing exactly how I feel about it, but know that it is a near masterpiece, and yet another underappreciated gem of 2016, along with Silence. Annette Bening gives an Oscar worthy performance, and everyone in the cast is great as well. The music, the cinematography, both great. Where this film shines is in its writing and its sense of time and place. Its a wonderful film to let wash over you.

      Decent Film, but not as Good as "Beginners"

      Mike Mills created a masterpiece in "Beginners", so I expected a lot for "20th Century Women". And I have to say that I was let down. Not to say that this is a bad movie per se, it just didn't live up to its predecessor. But once I got passed that, I was able to appreciate the film for the small intimate character study it is.

      20th Century Women is an incredibly poignant and endearing film. Annette Benning gives an incredible performance as do the supporting cast. I love the entertwining of actual footage from that era and the voice over narration that deepens the film non formalaic plot. Great film!

      This is a wonderful story and realistic. It doesn't move fast and jump around quickly like so many current movies, there is a lot of dialog which is refreshing, more like European movies. The focus is on the characters not action and all of the actors do a wonderful job.

      A great coming to age film that will really blow away some. Written and directed by Mike Mills who made Beginners which is a incredible film that you should check out. If you liked that, then you'll probably like 20th Century Women and vice versa.

      Really enjoyed this film. Anette Benning is a wonderful actress. Loved her in American Beauty and the Kids Are Alright. The biggest surprise was the relationship the the kid had with all three women. He acted very convincingly. Good story.

      Got the Blu Ray at the store, and actually had to exchange it because something was wrong with the menu screen, but I was able to exchange it quickly with no problem. The movie itself was wonderful. Annette Bening was amazing as always.
