Beginners

I really wish this film would make its mind up!

One minute Christopher Plummer is embracing life, having come out at the age of 75; the next, Ewan McGregor is wallowing in angst about whether yet another kooky girlfriend will leave him.

Life-affirming stereotypes or emotionless rom-com?

OK, we get it, relationships are risks, you might get hurt, but you’ve got to let people in if you’re not going to die alone.

This was an average film, which would have been so much better if I had actually liked the couple involved.  As it was, I wasn’t bothered about what happened to them.  

In fact the dog, Arthur took no nonsense, had the best lines and stole the show!
