20th Century Women

Dorothea (Annette Bening) is raising her 15 years old son as a single mother and she enlists the assistance of her flatmate and two ever-present neighbours to fill the gap of the absent father.

'20th Century Women' is set in 1979 with flashback references to earlier days and which supports its period feel with frequent photographs and moving images of those times.

Whilst mainly a drama with some humorous overtones the slow moving nature of the narrative becomes oddly compelling.
