Synopsis: With 20th Century Women, writer-director Mike Mills presents a richly multilayered, funny, heart-stirring celebration of the complexities of women, family, time, and the connections for which we search our whole lives.
Set in Santa Barbara in the summer of 1979, the film follows Dorothea Fields (Annette Bening), a determined single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann) at a moment brimming with cultural change and rebellion. Dorothea enlists the help of two younger women in Jamie’s upbringing - via 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.
Mills recreates the warmth and passion of a great memory – but also the urgency and energy of three generations in the throes of momentous transition. Dorothea, conveys her unconditional love for her son together with her increasing bewilderment about the world she is watching him enter. As members of a share house with the Fields, Gerwig, Fanning, and Billy Crudup are the unique characters who each contribute in crucial ways to Jamie’s upbringing. 20th Century Women is a poignant love letter to the people who raise us – and the times that form us – as this makeshift family forges fragile connections that will mystify, haunt and inspire them through their lives.
EOne is releasing the film nationally in the first quarter of 2017.
