In terms of relationships, we are all beginners. For those who are waiting to watch a story that portrays realistic situations and the plot grabs the watcher by making him feel identified as the main character.
I advice you to go to the cinema and enjoy a great movie full of emotions.
Once again, Mike Mills, the director of the movie, Thumbsucker. Brings again a great story, intertwining drama and comedy, Beginners. The story demonstrates a paradox, whereas life can be amazing, fun and transforming, even in the most serious moments.
Ewan McGregor, (with a Golden Globe nomination) portrays the main character, Oliver Fields. A character with a personality that wants to explore all kinds of feelings, and is situated in a difficult position with all types of feelings mixings, such as confusion, humor, and love.
After his father’s death, interpreted by (Christopher Plummer, Oscar nominated ) He meets Anna (Mélanie Laurent), a woman with a unique and surprising character.
Experiencing this new love, Oliver starts thinking more about his father’s life, and the decisions that he took in his life. The story gives a twist when the father after being 44 years married; he decides to be sincere and brings the truth out, by admitting that he was homosexual. With 75 years old, the father thought it was never too late, to feel truly free, and to admit his sexuality in order to live his gay life.
It is amazing how after this huge truth, the relationship between father and child takes a turning point. Providing a great story where a relationship take a new and fresh start, instead of fading apart, becomes more strong and honest than ever.
It is never late to begin a certain path in our lives. Even if we know there can be great consequences but if it makes ourselves happy, that is the only thing that matters. You cannot play with the heart, and sometimes the mind numbs the feelings to bring a little bit of rationality, but at the end the heart is always stronger.
