Beginners (2011), starring Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer,
and Melanie Laurent. The cast alone makes me want to see this film--
but this description, too: "A young man is rocked by two announcements
from his elderly father: that he has terminal cancer and that he has a
young male lover. Christopher Plummer and this synopsis--what's not to love?
Bridesmaids (2011) with Kristin Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Rose Byrne.
Anyone who mentions this film to me does so with a flare of constant
giggling. That's gotta mean something.
Midnight in Paris, starring Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, and
directed by Woody Allen. I haven't heard a whole lot about this film, but it
seems like something that would be right up my alley--a romantic comedy set
in Paris, Rachel McAdams, Mr. Allen. It's worth a shot.
Somewhere (2010) stars Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning (yep, Dakota's
baby sister) in this heartfelt film about "a hard-living Hollywood actor who
re-examines his life after his 11-year-old daughter surprises him with a
visit". Written and directed by Sophia Coppola.
Tree of Life (2011) features Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, and newcomer,
Jessica Chastain in a story that centers around a family with three
boys in the 1950s (I imagine it's a coming-of-age story about innocence).
The preview makes it look good, and I'm looking forward to seeing
what Chastain brings to the table.
