20th Century Women

American Essentials Film Festival

9 May 2017 - 28 May 2017

Oscar Winning director Mike Mills throws another cinematic trump card on the table with this tale of a mother doing her best to bring up a teenage son. 

Dorothea (Bening) is mother to Jamie (Zumann) and he’s growing up fast. It’s a challenging time and Dorothea decides she needs all the help she can get. Living in a house with lots of comings and goings, Dorothea enlists the services of her punk-rocker lodger Abbie (Gerwig) and Julie (Fanning) Jamie’s best friend.

Together they share their lives and experiences in the hope that these personal insights will help guide Jamie to manhood but they’re complex things to absorb.
