Movie Review: Beginners

Tonight I went and saw Beginners staring Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer. 

It was a great film. I laughed so loud that I missed dialogue, and then later I cried along with the characters. It was a gorgeous understated little film about the History of Sadness and how sometimes all you have to do is try, even though you don't know how.

On a side note: It reminded me why I fell in love with Ewan McGregor all those years ago when I first saw him in Shallow Grave (which remains one of my favourite movies of all time). He's an amazing actor. Christopher Plummer, of course, is also fantastic and just melt into the role completely.
I highly recommend it.
Don't pay any attention to the official synopsis on IMDB though - it's not very accurate.
