Santa Barbara, 1979.

A mother at 40, Dorothea (Benning) doesn’t quite know what to do with her teenage son, so she enlists their punky lodger (Gerwig) and her best friend (Fanning) to help him understand the world.

With engaging characters, wry humour and a superb ensemble cast, Mills draws us into this slice of Californian life while deftly exploring the late 1970s as a social, cultural and political turning point.

Nominated for the Best Original Screenplay Oscar, this is a must for anyone who enjoys character-driven drama “crafted with tender precision” (The Telegraph).
