On Friday, Beginners opens at the Magnolia Theatre in Dallas. The film was one of the talks of the South by Southwest Film Conference after making its U.S. premiere there in March. In it, Hal (Christopher Plummer) comes out to his son, Oliver (Ewan McGregor), at the age of 75 after his wife passes away. The father-son relationship is turned on its head as dad makes up for lost time and embraces his new identity.
To get you primed for the film, Focus Features is offering up a prize pack to one winner that includes: Drawings From The Film Beginners by director Mike Mills, a download card for the official soundtrack and a set of 9 Scout Books.
The pack will go to the first person to e-mail me (email@example.com) the answer to this trivia question: Name the filmmaker that Beginners director Mike Mills is married to.
UPDATE: That was quick – congratulations to our winner, Christopher.
P.S.: The answer is Miranda July.
