Wondering why times are missing?

Beginners

A young man (Ewan McGregor) is shocked to discover that his freshly widowed father (Christopher Plummer, no less) is A) dying of terminal cancer and B) coming out of the closet. Mike Mills (Thumbsucker) writes and directs this alternately touchy and touching comedy drama. The film--partially autobiographical, it should be noted--concentrates on the idea of reinventing yourself at any age. 105 minutes R.
