Beginners make a splash this fall

Buy on Amazon

Universal Home Entertainment has added Beginners to their schedule, lining up the film for release on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc in November.

Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor, Academy Award® nominee Christopher Plummer, and Mélanie Laurent star in “Beginners,” an uplifting comedy about how funny and transformative life can be. When graphic designer Oliver (McGregor) meets free-spirited Anna (Laurent) shortly after his father (Plummer) has passed away, Oliver realizes just how much of a beginner he is when it comes to long-lasting romantic love. Memories of his father, who, following the death of his wife of 45 years, came out of the closet at age 75 to live a full, energized, and wonderfully tumultuous gay life, encourage Oliver to open himself up to the potential of a true relationship. Inspired by writer/director Mike Mills’ own father, it’s an original love story that critics cheer is “smart, poignant and often hilarious!” (Karen Durbin, Elle).

The DVD version will feature an anamorphic transfer of the film with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio. No bonus materials have been announced.

On Blu-Ray Disc will get to experience the movie in 1080p high definition with a DTS 5.1 HD Master Audio track, but unfortunately, no bonus materials have been announced for that version either.

“Beginners” arrives in stores on November 15 for $29.98 on DVD and $34.98 on Blu-Ray Disc.
