20th Century Women
STAFF PICK!
Amber said on 2022-01-01:
This film follows the lives of five people spanning three generations living during 1979 in Santa Barbara, California. Annette Bening plays Dorothea, a divorced woman in her mid 50s raising her teenage son, a solid performance by Lucas Jade Zumann, without male role models. The other main characters (Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwig and Billy Crudup) are equally compelling and each brings their own unique contribution and impact to the film. I love the music and the film techniques deployed in this movie. The embedded history lessons are a fascinating fit!

In 1979 Santa Barbara, California, Dorothea Fields 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, a free-spirited punk artist living as a boarder in the Fields' home and Julie, a savvy and provocative teenage neighbour – to help with Jamie's upbringing.
