I'm excited that BEGINNERS starring Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer is finally opening here in Rochester! Be sure to check it out at the Little Theatre starting tonight. It's one of my favorite gay-themed films from late last year (Toronto Int'l Film Festival) and I was hoping that I could include it in my ImageOut October lineup. It was wishful thinking indeed as a film as good as this would definitely get mainstream distribution. Anyway, I'm just glad that it can be seen by our audiences.
This comedic drama is a memory piece about a son and his dying father, who recently comes out to him as being a homosexual. Here's what the New York Times says about the film.
