I thought most of it was bleh. The humur was plain bad. I am thrilled that Christopher Plummer got his award for Beginners, but it's subject is one I don't condone. I watched it as character/writing research for the story I'm writing that deals with the journey of healing of a sexually confused and all around abused man. Plummer's char in this film gave me the idea for the char that is mentor to my abused one. A man that has turned from homosexuality rather than embracing it as his char did in the film. Yet, why I believe he deserves his win is because he gave his character a very human spirit. Well done, Sir. And well done for showing that elders still got it! The Help and Hugo, dad and I will be renting soon.
