This isn't the best movie of all time — neither the best of the year. But 20th Century Women is really a movie to remember. Very meaningful, well written, directed, and wholeheartedly edited. Although it didn't get enough recognition, it's a movie that I'd recommend to anyone, and I'm glad to say: specially to women. I'm not saying it was underrated, but it didn't get enough buzz as it actually should.

What a fantastic movie! It's complex, evocative, and intimate. Well deserving of it's Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay. The acting is complex and fully formed: Annette Bening is superb, Elle Fanning and Luca Jade Zumann belie their age giving seasoned performances, Billy Crudup and Greta Gerwig complete an ensemble of amazingly drawn characters. Some of the cinematic choices were unexpected but appropriate to the period. Mike Miles mined the depth of the era in which he grew up and portrayed it quintessentially. I can't say enough about how good this movie is. I give it a 9.5 (next to perfect) out of 10.

Mike Mills' semi autobiographical character says he was unable to explain his mother to his children. He has the same difficulty in this film. Watch Almost Famous instead.

20th Century Women is one of the great films of 2016 that went completely under the wire. The cast is great with Annette Bening leading the way and the story is a great complex semi-autobiographical piece about being raise by a unorthodox family.

The year is 1979 and Dorothea Fields finds herself in her 50s raising a teenage boy, Jaime, while running a house in Santa Barbara that is always going through renovations.

**Rather a 20th century tale!**

You have seen films like this often. This is where a chick film meets art. Art means not the flick full of inspiration, message, awareness. But the presentation was so pleasant. The screenplay carefully picked the right events, and the dialogues were good. The book More
