Mike Mills, Annapurna Plan “20th Century”

Mike Mills (“Beginners,” “Thumbsucker”) is set to pen and direct “20th Century Women” at Annapurna Pictures.

Set in the late 1970s, the story is about three very different women teaching a boy what men are, what women are, about love and freedom and finding your own form of sanity in Santa Barbara 1979.

When the boy’s mother takes in a male border, his world view is further shaken by the man’s desire to understand and be loved by these seemingly unknowable women.

Casting is now underway. Megan Ellison, Anne Carey and Youree Henley will produce with filming beginning later this year in Southern California.
