20th Century Women/20th Century Women, 2016.
The 1970s in the US were a time of punk rock, loose morals, feminism, and sunny glare in photographs. (which is what the poster for the film looks like, by the way). The main character, Dorothea, played by Annette Bening, is constantly questioning her qualifications as the mother of 15-year-old Jamie. The second heroine is Abby. A photographer and active member of the punk movement, this photographer is recovering from a serious illness. And the third is young Julie, Jamie’s best friend. Both Abby and Julie try to help Dorothea better understand her son. Director Mike Mills called his partly autobiographical film “.

This is a typical indie film with characters, images, a carefully reconstructed zeitgeist, and real-life dialogue.
