On this episode of ‘VICE Talks Film,’ we sit down with director Mike Mills to talk about his latest autobiographical film, ’20th Century Women.’ The coming of age tale stars Annette Bening, who channels Mills’s real-life mother as Dorthea and enlists two younger women (Greta Gerwig and Elle Fanning) to help her raise her adolescent punk rock son.

Mills talks about his own experience being raised by strong, outspoken women, the role music plays in the movie, and how he built the perfect cast based on his real family.
