"20th Century Women" should have been re titled "The Way We Were," but that title of the movie was already taken. the movie take place in 1979 where plenty of culture changes were taken place. I can recall living in 1979 and experience the things in my life. I fell in love with the women of "One Day at a Time," especially falling for an older woman like Bonnie Franklin. But enough about me, let's get to the movie. Annette Bening plays a middle age women who smokes a lot and i mean smokes a lot. Smoking back then was accepted even after they surgeon general deem smoking as a health risk, and was 15 years before the events in the movie. She's having problem raising her son who keeps getting into trouble, she got help from two women: Abbie, a free spirited woman played by Greta Grwing and Julie played by Elle Fanning. 2016 was the year I experienced the maturity of Ellen Fanning from a teenager to a serious young actress. Seeing her smoke in the movie is hard for me because I was comfortable seeing her grew up on the big screen. It could take a while before i adjust to being a more mature actress. They got plenty of book worth reading. They even show the titles of the books on the big screen. The movie is written and directed by Mike Mills who knows how to make a movie that has insight and has intelligence. One of the best and smarted movies that I ever sat though

It was very well made and well written, so I understand it's Best Original Screenplay Oscar nomination. Even so, I didn't love it. It got bogged down with trying to juggle too much with too many different character stories, and as a result felt a little long and slow. Don't get me wrong, it's definitely a good movie, I just don't see myself watching it again.
