I'm trying to make space on my dvr, which means catching up on stuff I recorded but never got around to watching.
Back in June, I recorded Beginners during a free Cinemax preview.
I don't know why it took me five months to watch it, but I really loved it. I mistakenly thought the movie was all about Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer as his openly gay, terminally ill father, but I got caught up in Ewan McGregor and Mélanie Laurent's storyline.

I also made time for Marie Antoinette.

It wasn't perfect, but it's impossible not to be wowed by the production values. The cinematography, the costumes--all of it, breathtaking.
