[7.00/10] 20th Century Women (2016)

20th Century Women (2016)

Quick Review: Set in 1977 Cali, it captures the feel of this period both vibrantly, and accurately. The most interesting thing about it, though, is how it makes its humane story about personal struggles very abstract in its approach with a three-act plotting and somewhat eccentric delivery. In the end "20th Century Women" is all about Bening and her ability to drive the whole film with an award-worthy performance that is affecting, quirky and amusing all at once.
