20TH CENTURY WOMEN is a poignant love letter to the people who raise us – and the times that form us – as this makeshift family forges fragile connections that will mystify and inspire them through their lives.

With 20th Century Women, acclaimed filmmaker Mike Mills (BEGINNERS) brings us a richly multi-layered, funny, heart-stirring celebration of the complexities of women, family, time, and the connections we search for our whole lives. Set in Santa Barbara, the film follows Dorothea Fields, a determined single mother who is raising her adolescent  son, Jamie at a moment in the early 1970's brimming with cultural change and rebellion. Dorothea enlists the help of two younger women in Jamie's upbringing: Abbie, a free-spirited punk artist living as a boarder in the Fields' home, and Julie, a savvy and provocative teenage neighbour.
