Full Theatrical Trailer for '20th Century Women' with Annette Bening
"When you were born, I told you life was very big and unknown…" A24 has revealed the second trailer for Mike Mills' latest film, titled 20th Century Women, which premiered to rave reviews at the New York Film Festival (see the first teaser). The film is about three women living in the late 1970s who explore love and freedom living together in a bohemian house in Santa Barbara. The ensemble cast includes Annette Bening in the lead as the mother, with Elle Fanning, Alia Shawkat, Laura Wiggins, Billy Crudup, Greta Gerwig, John Billingsley and Waleed Zuaiter. Reviews from NYFF call the film an "exquisite celebration of womanhood." This really looks quite wonderful, I'm looking forward to seeing it. Take a look.
Here's the full theatrical trailer (+ poster) for Mike Mills' 20th Century Women, direct from YouTube:
The story of three women who explore love and freedom in Southern California during the late 1970s. The great Annette Bening, in one of her very best performances, is Dorothea, a single mother raising her teenage son, Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann), in a sprawling bohemian house, which is shared by an itinerant carpenter (Billy Crudup) and a punk artist with a Bowie haircut (Greta Gerwig) and frequented by Jamie's rebellious friend Julie (Elle Fanning). 20th Century Women is warm, funny, and a work of passionate artistry. 20th Century Women is both written and directed by American filmmaker Mike Mills, of the films Thumbsucker and Beginners previously. The film will premiere at the New York Film Festival this month. A24 will then release 20th Century Women in select theaters starting December 25th this fall.

As chick flicks go, this looks interesting ... And Annette Bening won't do any harm in this, obviously ...

How is this a chick flick?

They are chicks, women and girls, in it. And they seem to have mostly leading roles. And, in fact, they are overgrowing that label that you are asking about. So, this looks interesting beyond that label ... In my way of understanding. What's yours?

I see a chick flick as a film that indulges in all the vain things associated with women, mostly without anything to intelligent to say. Like Pretty Woman or 27 Dresses or something.

I wouldn't disagree with you. I would even admit that my characterization in first comment was too loose or even inaccurate. At the moment of writing that comment, I was thinking I am ironizing all the things you described, but I guess, I was a bit lazy. I have to be more careful, I guess. This looks better than films you described... Thanks for your intervention. Cheers ...
