The kind of movie you wish more directors had the courage to grab for.Time Out
A simply glorious Annette Bening leads a stellar cast in Mike Mills' (Beginners) semiautobiographical story about a bohemian woman raising a teen in the age of 1970's feminism and punk rock.
Benning plays Santa Barbara single mum and boardinghouse landlord, Dorothea, who decides the best way she can parent her teenage son (Lucas Jade Zumann) is to enlist her young tenants - a quirky punk photographer (Greta Gerwig), a mellow handyman (Billy Crudup) and her son's shrewd best friend (Elle Fanning) - to serve as role models in a changing world.
Mills’ film has a wonderfully loose feel to it, allowing us to enjoy this gorgeous film and these wonderful characters to their full extent. A treat.
