Like Moonlight, director Mike Mills’ 20th Century Women also hits close to home, in his case because he based the story on his own experiences — much like his 2010 film Beginners. Annette Bening plays the lead in 20th Century Women as a character inspired by Mills’ mother and already is being buzzed about for an Oscar nomination in this A24 film about three women who raise an adolescent boy (Lucas Jade Zumann) during a pivotal summer in 1979. Elle Fanning and Greta Gerwig also star. Mills approached the film very personally, using his mother’s belongings as props. “That’s my mom’s jewelry [Bening] is wearing. She’s laying on my mom’s bedspread,” he said. However, Mills insists he didn’t direct Bening to do an impression of his mother, instead following her lead in finding the character. “What she does that still trips me out,” he says, “is she can pack so many contradictory microexpressions into one non-dialogue moment.” Calling it “just effortless,” The writer-director says Bening’s particular “magic trick” is that it it feels natural, that it “isn’t gonna look like [she] worked on this.” A24 acquired U.S. distribution rights to 20th Century Women in June. Before this picture, Mills probably was best known for Beginners. 20th Century Women was produced and financed by Annapurna Pictures’ Megan Ellison, Archer Gray’s Anne Carey, and Youree Henley. The film starts its Oscar-qualifying run on December 23 and will go wide January 20. Read More: // here
