I Hope It Lasts (Forever)
Sometimes you watch a trailer and then you watch it again, wanting it to keep going on and last forever. This is one of those trailers. Christopher Plummer, Ewan McGregor, Mélanie Laurent...and a dog. Ewan plays Oliver, whose elderly father, Hal (Plummer) comes out and then tells Oliver he has both a young lover and terminal cancer. Laurent is Anna, just starting a relationship with Oliver. What could be hokey and overdone, instead feels sweet and real and moving. Like Blue Valentine, even though there's a sense this will be heartbreaking experience, we're left with a feeling it will be worth it to take a ride with these characters.
Beginners is writer/director Mike Mills' (Thumbsucker) second feature film and will be in theaters June 3, 2011.
