Release Of The Week! 20th Century Women (M)
Available 13 September – Outdoor from 13 December 2017.

Critical Response via Wikipedia
20th Century Women received universal acclaim from film critics. It holds an 89% approval rating on review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, based on 177 reviews, with an average rating of 7.8/10. The site’s critical consensus reads, “20th Century Women offers Annette Bening a too-rare opportunity to shine in a leading role — and marks another assured step forward for writer-director Mike Mills.”On Metacritic, the film holds a rating of 83 out of 100, based on 40 critics, indicating “universal acclaim”.

Owen Gleiberman of Variety gave the film a positive review, writing: “The best thing about the movie is Bening’s performance as Dorothea Fields, who’s portrayed as a very particular kind of contradictory free spirit. Divorced and proud, with a lot of heart and soul but even more over-sharing flakiness”. David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter also gave the film a positive review, writing: “Mills uses some of the same devices as Beginners to illuminate his characters’ cultural formation, notably historic montages of their birth years or backgrounds prior to coming together. And he also glances ahead to their future lives, after the arc of the movie. But the quilting is more seamless here because the eccentricities are so integral to the writing and performances.

‘An insightful and, on occasion, laugh-out-loud piece of filmmaking. Artfully shot and structured, while its warmth and wit shine as brightly as the Californian sun’Empire Magazine (Read Full Review)
