Beginners Synopsis

From writer/director Mike Mills comes a comedy/drama about how deeply funny and transformative life can be, even at its most serious moments. 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 (Mélanie 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 stories about Terrence Malick are pervasive and almost mythical. A master of his craft who works at a Kubrickian pace, he often drifts comfortably out of the public eye only to show up once a decade with a stunning piece of cinema. However, this mode of filmmaking doesn't sit well with everyone and at a recent interview Christopher Plummer let it be known that one film with Malick was more than enough.
