Lessons in love and life
Directed by Mike Mills
Reviewed by Sandra Crosbie
Beginners is a quirky, modern, movie which
beautifully explores the relationships of
three characters Oliver (Ewan McGregor),
his father (Christopher Plummer) and
Oliver's new-found love Anna (Melanie
Director and screenwriter Mike Mills
based the movie on his own life experience.
Beginners started when my father came
out of the closet,'' writer-director Mike Mills
says in his director's statement. He was 75
years old, and had been married to my
mother for 45 years.
His hunger to completely change his life
was confusing, painful, very funny, and
Change, honesty, and openness can
happen when it seems least likely. Even as
he passed away five years later to cancer he
was energised, reaching out; he wasn't in

still a very thought-provoking movie and
certainly makes you think about life and
relationships -- in this case, primarily
between a father and son.
It is also about loss -- from many angles.
Beginners is a quality movie which easily
absorbs you and will touch you in some way
and may give you an insight into what love
