Love stories...

You know that type of film you walk out of with an undeniable urge to tell strangers that the world is a beautiful place, Beginners is that type of film. Our story follows Oliver (Ewan McGregor) on a metaphorical game of hide and seek with love. Oliver is dealing with first the rediscovery, and then the loss of his father, Hal (Christopher Plummer), the meeting of new love through Anna (Melanie Laurent) and a conflicting past which imposes itself upon his current emotional stability. Written and directed by Mike Mills it is no wonder this poetic film has the capacity to intertwine audiences within its imagery, the intimate moments he creates seem to reach out to the unconscious threads within our own minds... "You spend your whole life wanting a lion, then a giraffe comes along and says it wants to spend the rest of its life with you. You're going to take the giraffe".
