The trailer for writer/director Mike Mills’ (Thumbsucker) comedy/drama Beginners has landed online.  Starring Ewan McGregor, Oscar-nominee Christopher Plummer (The Last Station), and Mélanie Laurent (Inglorious Bastards), Beginners follows a man named Oliver (McGregor) as he meets Anna (Laurent) and proceeds to reflect on the lessons taught to him by his late father (Plummer).  I heard very good things about Beginners after it screened at TIFF and this sentimentally charming trailer (and delightfully simplistic poster) does little to undercut that praise.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer, poster, and synopsis.  Beginners hits select theaters this summer on June 3rd.

Here’s the trailer [from Apple]:

Here’s the synopsis for Beginners:

From writer/director Mike Mills comes a comedy/drama about how deeply funny and transformative life can be, even at its most serious moments. -Beginners- imaginatively explores the hilarity, confusion, and surprises of love through the evolving consciousness of Oliver (Golden Globe Award nominee Ewan McGregor). Oliver meets the irreverent and unpredictable Anna (Melanie Laurent of Inglourious Basterds) only months after his father Hal (Academy Award nominee Christopher Plummer) has passed away. This new love floods Oliver with memories of his father who – following 44 years of marriage – came out of the closet at age 75 to live a full, energized, and wonderfully tumultuous gay life. The upheavals of Hal’s new honesty, by turns funny and moving, brought father and son closer than they’d ever been able to be. Now Oliver endeavors to love Anna with all the bravery, humor, and hope that his father taught him.

    Looks great, but Ewan can’t do an American accent. He’s silly American accent ruins every film he does with it – Robots, I Love You Phillip Morris, Deception, Down With Love and so on.
