>Mike Mills ‘Beginners’ out June 17

>I can’t shake how lovely the film ‘Beginners’ is. I mailed my friend today saying this is the summer of Lovely. All things lovely.

So, I’ve gone on about the lovely film ‘Beginners’ Directed by Mike Mills (husband of Miranda July). The film stars the incredible Canadian Chirstopher Plummer, Ewan MacGregor and the very beautiful Mélanie Laurent. The film is about the revelries of life, some joyous some overbearing.

I fortuantely have the pleasure of watching this film at TIFF ’10. I was surprised and warmed inside.

I’m most excited by the booming soundtrack that makes me feel equal parts classy and in love.

Soak it in –
