Christopher Plummer took home the award for best supporting actor at the Golden Globes last night for his role in Beginners, the latest film from filmmaker Mike Mills.

This Mill’s second full length feature and the latest feat in a career that spans graphic design, broadcast commercials, short film and music video.

Based on Mill’s own experiences, the film follows Oliver (Ewan McGregor) as he cares for his father who, at 75 comes out of the closet and begins to live out his life as his real self. A frank and handsomely crafted film about the oddities and beauty of what it means to be live as you are. Also featuring Melanie Laurent as Anna.
