Mike Mills United States, 2016

msmichel's rating of the film 20th Century Women

Mike Mills' latest far outshines the promise he showed with 'Thumbsucker' and 'Beginners' with this exceptionally well scripted take on motherhood, community and identity both female and male. Performances across the board are quite extraordinary especially the trio of actresses showcasing women of three separate age groups. Bening may have the heaviest lifting here but Gerwig and Fanning both impress here as well.
