‘Beginners’ tells the story of a man whose recently widowed 70-something father finally comes out of the closet. After 40 odd years of marriage, he finally has the courage to say he is gay.

It is based on director Mike Mills’ father, who did exactly that, making it seriously autobiographical.

The film not only stars Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer and Melanie Laurent but also features the cutest fox terrier seen on screens in years guaranteeing bums on seats this summer.
