Nominated for the 2017 Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. In 'Beginners', director Mike Mills offered up a loving portrait of his father. This time it's the turn of his mother and Annette Bening gives a barnstorming, career-best performance as Dorothea Fields, flawlessly delivering zingers like "Wondering if you’re happy is just a shortcut to being depressed". Set in 1970s Santa Barbara, the film follows Dorothea Fields (Bening), a determined single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie, at a moment brimming with cultural change and rebellion. Dorothea enlists the help of two younger women in Jamie’s upbringing – via Abbie (Greta Gerwig), a free-spirited punk artist living as a boarder in the Fields’ home, and Julie (Elle Fanning), their savvy teenage neighbour. Unvarnished and oozing charisma, Bening radiates in this coming-of-age comedy. ★★★★★ "Crafted with tender precision, and built to last" - Tim Robey, The Telegraph
