I reviewed the new movie "Beginners" this week. I'd say about three stars. Good, but not great.
Here's an excerpt:
“'Beginners' features a precocious Jack Russell terrier who occasionally speaks in subtitles, and it still manages to be a decent movie. When you think about it, that’s pretty amazing. Because when I saw the talking dog, I braced myself for an overly cutesy, twee and annoying little film. And 'Beginners' does have its cutesy, twee and annoying moments. But it’s also a heartfelt and moving film, and director Mike Mills balances the quirk and sincerity fairly well."
