Description
Christopher Plummer won an Oscar in 2012 for his role as an older gay man who comes out, jubilantly; Goran Visnjic is his partner, Ewan McGregor his bewildered and bereft son Oliver, and Mélanie Laurent the marvelous new woman in Oliver's life.

"Mills's marvelously inventive romantic comedy ... is pickled in sadness, loss, and the belief that humans (especially when they mate) are stunted by their parents' buried secrets, their own genetic makeup, and our sometimes-sociopathic social norms…. Beginners is like a comic artist's take on the material in Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life.... A cast that inspires you to empty out your bag of superlatives."—David Edelstein, New York

"It's difficult loving other people (the dog has it easy), a hardship that's evident in the happy-tearful faces, the tentative touches and searching glances that make this movie, or maybe all its yearning, so appealing. For the writer and director Mike Mills, who based this memory piece about a straight son and his dying gay father on his own life, love is a wonder even if its palpable reality largely remains elusive.... The movie’s attractions are undeniable, including its narrative design."—NYTimes
