"Look, wondering if you're happy – it's a great shortcut to just being depressed."

Entertainment One have recently released their first teaser trailer for Mike Mills' (Beginners) 20th Century Women teaser.

Beginners (2010) director Mike Mills' latest features several generations of women and arguably some of the best actresses working today, including Annette Bening (American Beauty), Elle Fanning (Maleficent) and Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha).

The year is 1979 and California's ever changing seaside town of Santa Barbara is a complicated place to grow up in for the teenage son of Dorothea (Bening), whose world is changed forever by the arrival of Billy Crudup's (Watchmen) former hippy turned handyman.

As the boarder living in the bungalow outside single Dorothea's home, he attracts the attention of not only Dorothea, but also Julie (Fanning), a provocative friend of the boy, and punk photographer Abbue (Gerwig).

"The film is an ode to the women who raised me – my mom, my sisters, the girls I was in love with or looked up to at school and in the punk rock scene where I really learned about the world," Mills told Variety.

20th Century Women will arrive on US screens around Christmas and will be out in the UK early next year.
