20th Century Women- Friday, June 23rd

At a complete loss as to how to raise her teenage son, Benning enlists the help of her three boardinghouse tenants – a quirky punk photographer (Gerwig), a mellow handyman (Billy Crudup) and her son’s shrewd best friend (Fanning) – to serve as role models in a changing world.

Jackson. “Transcendent. A meditation on the prophetic brilliance of James Baldwin.” – Variety Magazine. Film running time is 93 minutes. Rated PG-13.
