Oliver (Ewan McGregor) watches as his life begins to fall apart with three ads which makes it his father (Christopher Plummer) who has terminal cancer, who is g*y and has a younger lover.

This film is the second feature film from music video director Mike Mills who has worked with Moby and Yoko Ono.

Beginners is a story with autobiographical overtones that pinpoints how we are all always beginners as far as relationships are concerned.

The film explores the relationship between Oliver with the rest of his world: his father (Hal), the boyfriend of this (Andy), his late mother, Anna (Mélanie Laurent) a girl he meets in the middle of whole mess and even Hal 's dog.

The film talks about the experience of the director

Mills wrote the script based on his own story: his father confessed he was g*y at age 75 after 45 of marriage. " His appetite for changing his life was confusing, painful, hilarious and deeply inspiring," says the director on the website of the film. " Change, honesty and openness can happen when you least expect it."

Why Mike Mills now decides to reveal his father 's homosexuality?
