Award-winning Mike Mills is back again with another film that explores life and overall the human experience and humanity. You might know Mike Mill from his other films that explore humanity, such as his 2010 film ‘Beginners’ or his 2016 film ‘20th Century Women.’ Overall, Mike Mills is known for his storytelling capabilities that genuinely show and explain the different experiences that everyone goes through in their lifetimes, which only makes ‘C’mon C’mon’ make sense. ‘Beginners’ and ‘20th Century Women’ both explore different family structures and the hardships and tribulations that come with them. Similarly, in ‘C’mon C’mon,’ we will once again see the story of a family and the many struggles and journeys they live through. Oscar-winning Joaquin Phoenix will be gracing the big screen again in ‘C’mon C’mon’ in what will be his first feature role since the release of ‘Joker’ in 2019.

Joaquin Phoenix stars as Johnny, Jesse’s (Woody Norman) uncle in the film, and the brother of Viv (Gaby Hoffman), Jesse’s mother. ‘C’mon C’mon’ is an all-black and white drama set to release on November 19 that follows the story of a family coming to terms with the loss of a matriarch and an uncle and nephews budding relationship. Based on the trailer for the film, it is clear we will see moody viewpoints on death, family boundaries, and the perception that children have about the world and life in general. Johnny and Viv’s mother has passed a year earlier, ultimately causing a rift in their relationship, but this is not their only issue. Viv has a not-so-great relationship with a man who also is Jesse’s father, Paul (Scoot McNairy), who she often has to take time to stop her life and help fix his. Viv and Paul’s relationship has also been the root of many issues between Johnny and Viv, which has caused them to stop talking to each other in the past.

C’mon C’mon – A Revealing Journey

Johnny is a New York radio journalist with an exciting project on hand. In another effort to care for the man she loves, Viv informs Johnny that she must leave to care for Paul, which results in Johnny coming to stay with Jesse in Los Angeles while she goes on her emotional journey. As mentioned before, Johnny has a large project on hand that will require him to travel the United States interviewing children about their future and their fears about life in general. While staying in Los Angeles caring for his nephew, Johnny is pressured to go back to New York to continue work on his powerful project but is pulled both ways between his job and his family.

With a little convincing, Johnny is able to bring his young nephew on the journey with him in what will be the most emotional bonding experience in a film that we have all seen in a while. From the trailer, it is clear that Jesse, a 9-year-old boy, is extremely intelligent and curious about life himself. In fact, at some points throughout the trailer, we see him offering life advice and lessons to his adult uncle, Johnny. Johnny and Jesse don’t seem extremely close at first, but before we know it, they’re inseparable and are both tackling the meaning of life and how to navigate it.

While watching this unique bonding journey and experience, we are also getting the realness of the interview material that is coming out of the project. Their journey takes them all over the United States, but in the trailer, we can clearly see the project takes them to one of the most spiritual and cultured cities in the United States, New Orleans. Mike Mills made it his mission to truly provide the many different perceptions and challenges that many children have of the world and that they go through on a daily basis. One hugely enlightening thing from ‘C’mon C’mon’ is the emphasis that children are more than little humans, but instead, they are little adults who at times hold more knowledge about life and its hardships than grown adults.

Overall, the mixture between the family drama and relationships and the different harrowing experiences of the children being interviewed will definitely have everyone crying in the theater because it genuinely provides an emotional rollercoaster. It will be interesting to watch Joaquin Phoenix take on the feature role and have the chance to see a more soft side of the actor. Overall, ‘C’mon C’mon’ is an eye-opening film that offers perspective into adult-children relationships and the knowledge and power that children hold.

Lessons Learned

As mentioned before, ‘C’mon C’mon’ is full of life lessons and will most definitely force viewers to think about life in the human struggle. I am excited to watch Joaquin Phoenix, Gaby Hoffman, and Woody Norman take on their empowering roles within the film. Most of all, I am excited to see a different side of Joaquin Phoenix that is not always shown in the various films he has been a part of.

An excerpt from the love letter: The Hollywood Insider’s CEO/editor-in-chief Pritan Ambroase affirms, “The Hollywood Insider fully supports the much-needed Black Lives Matter movement. We are actively, physically and digitally a part of this global movement. We will continue reporting on this major issue of police brutality and legal murders of Black people to hold the system accountable. We will continue reporting on this major issue with kindness and respect to all Black people, as each and every one of them are seen and heard.

Just a reminder, that the Black Lives Matter movement is about more than just police brutality and extends into banking, housing, education, medical, infrastructure, etc. We have the space and time for all your stories. We believe in peaceful/non-violent protests and I would like to request the rest of media to focus on 95% of the protests that are peaceful and working effectively with positive changes happening daily. Media has a responsibility to better the world and The Hollywood Insider will continue to do so.”
