Beginners (Opening Film)

Oscar-winning film Beginners, imaginatively explores the glee, confusion, and surprises of love through the evolving consciousness of Oliver (Golden Globe Award nominee Ewan McGregor). Shortly after the death of his mother, Oliver’s father Hal (Christopher Plummer, winner of the 2012 Academy Award, Golden Globe & BAFTA awards for Best Supporting Actor) decides to come out of the closet at age 75 and live a full, energized, and wonderfully tumultuous gay life – which includes a younger boyfriend, Andy. The story weaves in Hal fighting cancer and Oliver’s nascent relationship with the irreverent and unpredictable Anna. Beginners was inspired by Mike Mills’ own father and is meant in turn to inspire everyone weighing their chances and choices in life and love.

Writer/ Director Mike Mills graduated from Cooper Union, 1989. His 2005 feature film Thumbsucker won him the Silver Bear trophy at the Berlin Film Festival. He has directed music videos for Moby, Air, Pulp and Yoko Ono

amongst many others. He has also combined his passion for music with design by creating record sleeves for Sonic Youth, Deee-Lite and Beastie Boys.
