365 Day Movie Challenge - #317: Beginners (2010) - dir. Mike Mills
I enjoyed the film, though it’s by no means great. Ewan McGregor knows how to do the adorable thing; Christopher Plummer is as great as always (though there were probably actors who deserved the Oscar more based on that year’s nomination alone rather than for the whole body of work); Mélanie Laurent is a sort of manic pixie dream girl à la française (I can see the resemblance to Miranda July), sometimes charming bur sometimes really annoying; the other main cast members (Goran Visnjic, Kai Lennox, Mary Page Keller, Keegan Boos, China Shavers) are good in varying degrees. It’s basically a sweet film. You’ll definitely love Cosmo (“Arthur”) the dog.
