C’mon C’mon

Johnny (Joaquin Phoenix, Inherent Vice, Her) and his young nephew, Jesse (Woody Norman), forge a tenuous but transformational relationship when they are unexpectedly thrown together in this delicate and deeply moving story from writer-director Mike Mills (20th Century Women). Johnny is a radio journalist whose trek across the country to interview kids is interrupted by his sister’s (Gaby Hoffmann, Transparent) sudden need for someone to care for eight-year-old Jesse in this “heartfelt and wise (Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair)” story about the connections between adults and children.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

"One of the most deeply reflective American filmmakers working today, Mills is a storyteller with a baring, raw sense of honesty"
Tomris Laffly, RogerEbert.com
"[An] insightful and emotionally satisfying film, shot with affecting intimacy"
David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
