I was brought up by a single mom who loved New Order and Rick James, I could see my own life paralleled in this film so much and could write about this forever. So I'm just going to keep it to two paragraphs and a haiku about attending the world premiere of Mike Mills
new film “20th Century Women”.
Running a comb through the fabric of our lives, to find those moments that defined us, anchored our morals, and set us on a path to who we may or may not be is not an easy task for a filmmaker. The number of atmospheres we are presented with through our lifetime is limitless. Who will those people be that leave the greatest mark on us? What will those situations be?
When we’re constantly changing and making new memories every second—the greatest thing we all have in common, is that we have lived our life differently. Though different paths are traveled, some variables remain the same. This film serves as a roadmap to putting those answers together and momentarily remedies the impatient road trip question "are we there yet?" while embarking you on the next one, "Where am I going next? And how will know I'm there, when I get there?". Mike Mills finally answers what feels like the unanswerable in his newest film 20th Century Women
A new film
Strong women are key
The sound of applause.
The film opens December 25th 2016—Stay tuned for where to see the film here.
