20th Century Women in The Skinny

One of the most enjoyable conversations I've had recently was with Mike Mills, who visited London in December to promote his new film 20th Century Women. This deeply personal portrait of his mother and the other women who helped shape his worldview as a teenager is Mills' most ambitious film to date, and also his best. 20th Century Women is a rich and moving film, boasting a career-best performance from Annette Bening, and it's a real pleasure to spend time in Mills' world. You can read both my interview with the director and my review of the film in the February Scottish edition of The Skinny, which is available now.
