20th Century Women

Posted 5/19/2017 2:58pm by Eugene Wyatt.

'20th Century Women' (2016) written and directed by Mike Mills.

In 1979 Santa Barbara, Dorothea Fields (Annette Bening) is a single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie. Dorothea enlists the help of two younger women—Abbie, a punk artist living as a boarder in the Fields' home and Julie, a savvy and provocative teenage neighbor—to help with Jamie's upbringing.

I like whatever character Annette Bening plays—she is 'big'—in my eyes, along with other cineastes. How she does she do 'big'? She plays 'small' details of her character.
