During the summer of 1979, at the sunset of the Carter presidency, a Santa Barbara single mom and boardinghouse landlord (Annette Bening) decides that 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 but troubled best friend (Elle Fanning) — to serve as his role models in a rapidly changing world. Written and directed by Mike Mills (Beginners).
