20th Century Women

20th Century Women ★★★★½

Do you all remember how incredible it was to see Annette Benning receive the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role at the 89th Academy Awards?

Do you remember how shocking it was when Elle Fanning and Greta Gerwig literally tied for Best Actress in a Supporting Role?

I can remember tearing up during Gerwig's speech, where she quoted Susan Sontag, saying "All great art contains at its center contemplation, a dynamic contemplation."

I can remember the camera lingering on Dakota Fanning cheering in utter delight as her sister received her first Academy Award.

Do you remember host Jimmy Kimmel cracking a joke about how "nobody" had seen the movie but they knew it was "great?"

Well Jimmy, it is great. And we'll forever cherish our memories of the 89th Academy Awards near and dear to our hearts.
