This month's movie is "Beginners," starringChristopher Plummer and Ewan McGregor.
A study in the evolution of one man's self-development of relational consciousness, Beginners is about a man who discovers that his widower father is dying of cancer and is also gay. The film won numerous awards, including a Golden Globe and Oscar for Christopher Plummer's groundbreaking performance.
Here are some reviews:
"A beautifully understated piece of filmmaking and a playfully inventive style of storytelling are combined to great effect in Beginners."
"A powerful homage not only to one's parents but to the power of community."
"In any other movie, the key character of Arthur, a soulful Jack Russell terrier, would draw all the attention away from the two-legged protagonists, but the performances by the three leads are so superb that everyone is able to share in the glory."
