An American romantic comedy, Beginners is told through a series of flashbacks telling the story of Oliver and his complicated and difficult relationship with his father. The film is gorgeously heartbreaking, demonstrating how hurtful we are to those we love, while showing the ties of mutual need that bind people. In the way it also takes on the process of finding one’s happiness, through the character’s eyes and his father’s, what that process has in common for both, and how one is inspired from the other. Beginners is lovely, funny, interesting, and above all very enjoyable.
Oh my god everyone in this movie needs to take some antidepressants and seek therapy. Don't get me wrong the movie is artsy and pretty and all but everyone in the movie is so unnecessarily depressing. -4 people liked this review.
