david_prown_120I had seen a preview or 2 for "Beginners" starting Ewan McGregor and the iconic Christopher Plummer and was not overly excited.

But when Joan Ellis loves a movie (joanellis.com), you go.

Didn't get in my pre-movie nap and the 5 hour energy drink just didn't do it for me - I still snoozed a bit.

Just not my kind of movie. I like movies with anguish, family issues and complexity of sort, but I just could not connect with this one.

Well cast, well acted and loved how the dog  was the only issue-free character and the "glue" between all characters.

Playing at White St. Red Bank - I would go see and discount my review. I was not on my A game.
