Lucas Jade Zumann made his feature-film debut with 2015's "Sinister 2" but didn't truly achieve his first big breakthrough until he was cast as Jamie in "20th Century Women," in which the 15-year-old actor shares scenes — and holds his own! — with Annette Bening, Elle Fanning, Billy Crudup and Greta Gerwig. He brings "as much spiky intelligence as vulnerability to Jamie's struggle with identity and manhood," wrote The Hollywood Reporter of the newcomer's performance in the film.
