20th century women
Santa Barbara, California,1979. Dorothea Fields (Annette Bening) is a determined, single mother in her 50s' raising her teenage son Jamie in a time of cultural change and rebellion. Dorothea takes the help of two younger women in the upbringin of Jamie. Abbie (Greta Gerwig), a free-thinking punk artist and Julie (Elle Fanning), a smart and provocative teenage girl who lives next door to the family and is a friend of Jamies'. Together, they try to teach him everything they can about life, love, sex and freedom. A humorous and emotional story about finding yourself and learning that you can not love others until you've learned to love yourself. And whether you really need a man to breed a man.
