BEGINNERS is a lovably quirky comedy drama with a rhythm all its own. The film might easily have degenerated into a sentimental mess but director Mike Mills keeps things sharp and smart.
The movie’s attractions are undeniable, including its narrative design, which seems more complex than it is, but is engaging to piece together. And the performers are charming, particularly Ms. Laurent and Mr.Plummer, with his killer eyes and a voice that echoes in your ears.
