Check out the official trailer for Beginners, starring Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer and Melanie Laurent.
The film follows a man named Oliver (McGreggor) as he copes with some surprising news upon his mothers death - his father is gay and has terminal cancer. Laurent plays McGregor's girlfriend in a film that looks emotionally devastating and renewing at the same time.
The film received a lot of praise at TIFF where Focus Features picked up the distribution rights.
The trailer gives you a sense that this is no fluffy dramedy, but one with some interesting life lessons.
The film, directed by Mike Mills, hits theaters June 3, 2011.
