During the summer of 1979, a Santa Barbara single mom and boardinghouse landlord (Annette Bening) decides the best way she can parent her teenage son (Lucas Jade Zumann) is to enlist her young tenants - a quirky punk photographer (Greta Gerwig), a mellow handyman (Billy Crudup) and her son's shrewd best friend (Elle Fanning) - to serve as role models in a changing world.

I saw this movie yesterday and it's very, very good. I teared up a lot, but it's not sad. The single mother/son affected me because it's close to home but there is so much more to the movie. The cast is bloody perfect, the scenario is strong, the dialogues are powerful. Even secondary roles are perfectly cast and perfectly chosen. Great movie.

I saw this last night and really liked it a lot.  Annette Bening was wonderful!  I was a bit unsure at first about how people were introduced, but in the end, I think it really worked, along with the epilogues for each person.
