Mike Mills’s latest feature, Beginners, has–as of this writing at least–a Metacritic score of 85 and a similar standing over at Rotten Tomatoes. It stars Ewan MacGregor and Sound of Music legend Christopher Plummer and it’s about a father and son who come to learn that Dad is gay–and finally coming out at age 75.
But it’s in limited release for now. That means if you live outside of, say, Los Angeles, New York and some other bigger markets around the country, you have to wait. Maybe for Netflix. We’re just happy to see any movie that realizes that homosexuals don’t evaporate into thin air once they turn 35.
