Sometimes you watch a movie and you can’t but think “That must have been very cathartic to write.” Beginners is a deeply personal journey through two strands of time, which never really intersect in the narrative-proper but thematically and emotionally in ways both obvious and subtle. Never self-pitying, nor is it an embellishment of self-hagiography, Beginners strives sincerity, and never e... read more

I must say that this movie tries too hard for it´s own convenience.

The filmakers get it done all right but you can almost see their continous e... read more

“In spite of corny, affected, arty dialogues; is moving, well structured around the presence and absence of Plummer, and sincere in its feelings (when Ewan cries, you cry).” read more

" I liked this film and found it surprisingly enjoyable. Afterwards however is the feeling of being slightly cheated. The relationship between Oliver and Anna is painfully dull. What makes the film bearable to watch is the side story of Hal and his late in life coming out. Ah, and the dog... So, it really it feels like 'here is a boring story' where your given clips from an interested story just so you don't walk out of the theater. Still not bad and thankfully I was spared any full frontal nud"

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. When it was done, I discovered that Mike Mills was the same guy who directed ‘Thumbsucker’, another movie I saw a few months ago, and it figures.
