Highly Suspect Reviews: 20th Century Women

Director Mike Mills took a look at his father through film with Christopher Plummer in 2010’s wonderful Beginners. Now, he turns the camera on his memories of his mother from 1979 with the sublime, 20th Century Women.

Annette Benning is the owner of a large house that rents rooms out to Billy Crudup and Greta Gerwig. As a single mom, she does her best to raise her pre-teen son Jesse but realizes soon that she needs help, and enlists her renters and a young neighbor girl (Elle Fanning) that Jesse has a crush on to help. Things don’t go as planned, everybody kinda learns something, and hell, you just watched one of the best movies of 2016. Seriously. Listen to Chris, Beau and Frank tell you the truth about this smart, great piece of cinema.
