Enter for your chance to win a pass, good for two!


Beginners Ewan McGregor Movie PosterWhen it comes to relationships, we’re all beginners.

From writer/director Mike Mills comes BEGINNERS, a comedy/drama about how deeply funny and transformative life can be, even at its most serious moments.

BEGINNERS imaginatively explores the hilarity, confusion, and surprises of love through the evolving consciousness of Oliver (Golden Globe Award nominee Ewan McGregor). Oliver meets the irreverent and unpredictable Anna (Mélanie Laurent of Inglourious Basterds) only months after his father Hal Fields (Academy Award nominee Christopher Plummer) has passed away.

This new love floods Oliver with memories of his father, who, following the death of his wife of 45 years, came out of the closet at age 75 to live a full, energized, and wonderfully tumultuous gay life – which included a younger boyfriend, Andy (Goran Visnjic of ER). The upheavals of Hal’s new honesty, by turns funny and moving, brought father and son closer than they’d ever been able to be. Now Oliver endeavors to love Anna with all the bravery, humor, and hope that his father taught him.

At once deeply personal and universal, BEGINNERS was inspired by Mike Mills’ own father and is meant in turn to inspire everyone weighing their chances and choices in life and love.
