The Actors Fund will host a benefit screening of Mike Mills' 20th Century Women December 5 at 7 PM at the Florence Gould Hall Theatre in New York.
The motion picture from filmmaker Mills (Oscar-winning Beginners) features Annette Bening, Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwig, Lucas Jade Zumann, and Billy Crudup.
Set in Santa Barbara, the film, according to press notes, “follows Dorothea Fields (Annette Bening), a determined single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie (newcomer Lucas Jade Zumann, in a breakout performance) at a moment brimming with cultural change and rebellion. Dorothea enlists the help of two younger women in Jamie’s upbringing — via Abbie (Greta Gerwig), a free-spirited punk artist living as a boarder in the Fields’ home, and Julie (Elle Fanning), a savvy and provocative teenage neighbor. 20th Century Women is a poignant love letter to the people who raise us – and the times that form us – as this makeshift family forges fragile connections that will mystify and inspire them through their lives.”
The film is scheduled to be released December 25. Watch the trailer below:
