"We've always believed that the life we set down for our kids will be better than our own" (A quote from Jimmy Carter's CRISIS OF CONFIDENCE speech in July 1979, a key scene in the film).
This brilliant coming of age drama depicts unconventional, loveable characters and the influence they have on the most grounded character of all, Jamie, (Lucas Jade Zumann) in 70's Santa Barbara, California. Dorothea Fields (Annette Bening), an older mum works to give Jamie the best platform for life she believes there can be. Lodger Abbie (Greta Gerwid) and insecure neighbour Julie (Elle Fanning) give depth to a clever script. Bening deserved oscar recognition (if only as a nominee) for this thoughtfully, wise film. Warmth Amongst Others ..... now there's a better title. 10GUMS.
