20th Century Women

In Beginners, director Mike Mills offered up a loving portrait of his father. This time it's the turn of his mother and Annette Bening gives a barnstorming, career-best performance as Dorothea Fields, flawlessly delivering zingers like "Wondering if you’re happy is just a shortcut to being depressed".

Unvarnished and oozing charisma, Bening radiates in this coming-of-age comedy.
