A still from C'mon C'mon 2021 movie

Mills wrote and directed two films on his relationship with his mother (Annette Bening in “20th Century Women”) and father (Christopher Plummer in “Beginners”), both of which were highly personal yet readily accessible. This film also deals with parenthood, but from the opposite side of the equation: Phoenix's character Johnny offers to assist his sister Viv (Gaby Hoffmann) by caring for her 9-year-old kid, Jesse (Woody Norman, so natural, it never feels like acting). It's a life-changing event for both of them, but not in the way you'd expect from a Judd Apatow or James L. Brooks film.

Johnny is childless and unmarried, which allows him to devote his entire focus to his profession. Viv wishes she had the same independence as her ex-husband (Scoot McNairy). Still, motherhood places tremendous obligations on her, which are worsened by the fact that her high-maintenance ex-husband (Scoot McNairy) is on the verge of another breakdown. Johnny offers to watch Jesse without waiting to be asked so that Viv may deal with the boy's father during this difficult time.

Johnny wants to turn the microphone on Jesse and ask him conventional questions about life and the future, but Jesse declines – though he will finally consent, bringing the film's emotional arc to a close. But first, Johnny must gain Johnny's trust. Jesse is a strong-willed youngster whose mother has taught him to express himself, sometimes too openly (“I heard she had an abortion,” he tells Johnny, taken aback by the news), and who demands open communication in return. “He's a little individual. Simply tell him the truth,” Viv says over the phone, confessing that she, too, may be irritated by her own creation.
