Christopher Plummer and Ewan McGregor in Beginners

dvd of the week

If you missed seeing Beginners in theaters this summer – and shame on you – it’s out on DVD Nov. 15. As I wrote a few months ago, the story of a gay father and his straight son “hasn’t found its way into too many movies. This is only one of the things that makes Beginners, Mike Mills’ exquisite new film starring Ewan McGregor as the straight son and Christopher Plummer as his newly out father, different. The other things – a non-linear story structure and a smart, funny and moving voice-over – are seamlessly combined with the kind of acting you expect from late-fall movies released as Oscar bait. I assume Beginners will be re-released at the end of the year just for that purpose, if for anything Plummer’s performance, arguably the best of his extremely long career.”
