20th Century Women with Mike Mills


Location: Redstone Theater

With Writer-Director Mike Mills in person

Dir. Mike Mills, 2016, 118 mins. With Annette Bening, Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup. This funny, astute, and unpredictable film about a single woman raising her son Jamie in 1979 Santa Barbara, in the heyday of feminism, is one of the year’s richest and most thoroughly delightful movies. Annette Bening has a career-best performance as Dorothea, who is as free-spirited as she is uncertain, and Elle Fanning, as Jamie’s friend Julie, also stands out among the great ensemble cast. Capturing a very specific time and place, the film also feels especially relevant in today’s uncertain times. According to the Hollywood Reporter, it “assembles exquisitely observed moments that coalesce into a portrait of how our lives are shaped by those closest to us and by cultural touchstones. The brightness and warmth of the visuals echo the tone to a tee.”
