For those of us anxious to see Ewan McGregor do more than ride his motorcycle around the world, news that Focus Features has picked up Mike Mills' (Thumbsucker) latest film is welcome, indeed. Premiering at the Toronto Film Festival, Beginners draws on the director's life experience with his own father, who came out at the age of 75 and died less than five years later. Described as heartbreaking and hilarious, the film stars Christopher Plummer as Oliver's (McGregor) father, Hal and Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds) as Anna, a woman starting a relationship with Oliver as Hal's revelations play out.

Here's a short clip:

I can't think of a better father/son onscreen paring than Plummer and McGregor; add in the fabulous Laurent and an added bit of eye candy, Goran Visnjic (Hal's young boyfriend) and there's no way I'll miss this one. Beginners is set for a 2011 release.
