Beginners was really good. I didn't think I could love Ewan MacGregor more than I already do, but my crush has intensified! The only slight misfire, imo, was Goran Visnjic as Christopher Plummer's boyfriend. I normally LOVE Goran, but I just didn't buy him in the role. Also, he had this very distracting, floppy hairdo. Still, it didn't take away from the rest of the movie.
