Guess what I did this weekend? I went to the Los Angeles Times Book Festival and, after being inundated by books galore, I attended a special screening of writer/director Mike Mill’s new film, “Beginners,” due out June 3. It’s a madly clever romantic comedy that centers around three “beginners” at love (Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer, and Melanie Laurent). Quirky without being grating, poignant without overreaching into sentimentality. High recommend from me. Read the full review at Ruelle Electrique.
