20th Century Women soundtrack (2017)

20th Century Women
various artists - music from the motion picture

A comedy-drama from 2016 about coming of age and aging in the late ’70s, "20th Century Women" features a soundtrack that mixes punk, new wave, and big band-era classics. In Mike Mills’ new semi-autobiographical film, Annette Benning stars as Dorothea, a single mother who tries to help her son Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann) grow up with the help of her tenant Abbie (Greta Gerwig) and her neighbor Julie (Elle Fanning). Music plays a key role in the film as Dorothea tries to understand Jamie’s love of punk rock, and Abbie bonds with Jamie by going to punk clubs.
The soundtrack reflects the film's time period with music from artists who helped define the era. In addition to groups such as Buzzcocks, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Germs, Suicide and Devo, Talking Heads are featured twice here, with the ’70s selections "Don’t Worry About the Government" and "The Big Country". Fare representing a prior generation includes "In a Sentimental Mood" by Benny Goodman & His Orchestra, "Basin Street Blues" by Louis Armstrong & His Hot Five, and a nostalgic "As Time Goes By" by the Vagabond Lover, Rudy Vallée. A sum total of 14 songs are peppered with ambient score tracks by composer Roger Neill, bringing the track list to 19.
Annette Bening commented on this: "An Oscar For '20th Century Women' would be incredible."
