“20TH CENTIURY WOMEN” ADDED TO ASPEN FILM’S 25TH ANNUAL ACADEMY SCREENINGS PROGRAM

“20TH CENTURY WOMEN” ADDED TO ASPEN FILM’S 25TH ANNUAL ACADEMY SCREENINGS PROGRAM 

Aspen, CO (December 15, 2016) – Aspen Film announced that 20th Century Women will join the line-up of the 25th Academy Screenings.  The film will screen on Wednesday, Dec. 28 at 5:30 p.m. at Paepcke Auditorium.  This annual film series runs December 21-January 1 and recognizes the forthcoming award-season contenders.

With 20th Century Women, acclaimed filmmaker Mike Mills brings a richly multilayered, funny, heart-stirring celebration of the complexities of women, family, time, and the connections we search for our whole lives. Set in Santa Barbara, the film follows Dorothea Fields (Annette Bening), a determined single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann) 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.
