*OPENING NIGHT GALA FILM *
119 min. in English Directed by: Mike Mills
Starring: Annette Bening, Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwig
Starring the impeccable Annette Bening and featuring an all-star cast of Billy Crudup, Greta Gerwig and Elle Fanning, 20th Century Women is a humorous coming of age tale set against the backdrop of the summer of 1979. A Santa Barbara single mom decides the best way she can parent her teenage son is to enlist her young tenants - a quirky punk photographer, a mellow handyman, and her son's shrewd best friend - to serve as role models in a changing world that she is not quite sure how to handle.
"Despite being set in the late 1970s, 20th Century Women feels like the perfect movie for this moment." ~ New York Post
