Trailer for Beginners with Plummer and McGregor

Beginners.jpgI have to admit that after watching the trailer for Beginners there are just three things that draw me to the film, Christopher Plummer, Ewan McGregor and Mélanie Laurent, the rest of it looks rather, well, odd and uninspiring to be honest.

However there's something else, Mike Mills is the writer and director of Thumbsucker and he serves the same roles on this film.

Beginners is a film about, well, let me turn you over to the official blurb to read about it:

Beginners imaginatively explores the hilarity, confusion, and surprises of love through the evolving consciousness of Oliver (Golden Globe Award nominee Ewan McGregor). Oliver meets the irreverent and unpredictable Anna (Melanie Laurent of Inglourious Basterds) only months after his father Hal (Academy Award nominee Christopher Plummer) has passed away. This new love floods Oliver with memories of his father who - following 44 years of marriage - came out of the closet at age 75 to live a full, energized, and wonderfully tumultuous gay life. The upheavals of Hal's new honesty, by turns funny and moving, brought father and son closer than they'd ever been able to be. Now Oliver endeavors to love Anna with all the bravery, humor, and hope that his father taught him.

The blurb comes through The Playlist who also have the YouTube trailer below and the link to the Apple Trailer:

A subtitled dog? It's going to be a little odd that's for sure, but then there's all this talent involved with the film, surely it's going to be something good.
