‘20th Century Women’: An Ode To A Mother | Film Trailer
“When you were born, I told you life was very big and unknown. There were animals and cities and music. You’d fall in love, have passions, have meaning. But now it’s 1979 and nothing means anything and I know you less every day”.
That pretty much sums up 20th Century Women, the new film directed by Mike Mills and starring Annette Bening, Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwid and Billy Crudup.
In this moving and soothing trailer, we find a son growing up and pulling away. We catch a glimpse of a first love. We hear president Jimmy Carter discussing a “crisis of confidence”. We see a mother struggling.
From what seems to be an Ode to a mother, from a masculine point of a view, does it take a man to raise a man? Let’s watch this film and we might find out.
20th Century Women, which premiered at the New York Film Festival last October, will be released in the UK on Friday, January 20.
