20th Century Women

November 28, 2017 Members’ Choice 8:30pm

With a superlative cast like this in the hands of Mills (Beginners, Beautiful Losers) such a sensitive nurturing director, nothing could go wrong. A five star comedy drama to relish as single mum Dorothea (Bening) has trouble raising her teenage son and engages the help of the other free-spirited women living in the house. Or might mother and son roles be reversed as Jamie worries about Dorothea?

The film somehow dodged an Oscar, but gathered a rash of other major awards mostly for the nuanced performances and mostly for Bening.

“Twentieth Century Women is a tribute to a great actress [Bening] at the peak of her powers. The film itself is the gold statuette.” Tim Robey, The Telegraph.
