In 1979 Santa Barbara, Dorothea Fields is a determined single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie, at a moment brimming with cultural change and rebellion. She decides to enlist the help of two younger women, Abbie, a punk artist living as a boarder in the Fields' home and Julie, a savvy teenage neighbour to help with Jamie's upbringing. Benning is simply astonishing in this funny, nuanced, lovely film. Dir. Mike Mills, US, 2016, 118 mins. Cast. Annette Benning, Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup.
