Slovenski opis filma:

/ USA / 2010 Scenarij in režija: Mike Mills / Igrajo: Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer, Mélanie Laurent, Goran Višnjić, Kai Lennox, Mary Page Keller… 38-letni grafični oblikovalec Oliver ostane po očetovi smrti sam z Arthurjem, pronicljivim in duhovitim terierjem (njegove misli beremo preko podnapisov) in svojim projektom Zgodovina žalosti... Ko sreča živahno in nepredvidljivo Anno, med njima vzklije ljubezen, ki Oliverja zbega in preplavi s spomini... Predvsem na svojega očeta Hala, ki je kmalu po materini smrti pri petinsedemdesetih oznanil, da je gej. Po tistem je takoj zamenjal garderobo, si priskrbel novega fanta in – ne da bi se pri tem menil za svoja leta ali neozdravljivo bolezen – zaživel novo, polno in čudovito razburljivo gejevsko življenje... Seveda si tudi Oliver prizadeva ljubiti Anno po najboljših močeh, oziroma vsaj tako, kakor je videl pri svojem ostarelem očetu, ki je svoja zadnja leta preživel v polnem sijaju… Začetniki so duhovita, igriva in odkritosrčna komična drama o ljubezni in izgubi, o začetkih in o koncih ter o tem, kako zelo smešno je lahko življenje tudi v najbolj resnih trenutkih. Film se ponaša s številnimi nagradami, med katerimi velja omeniti predvsem oskarja in nagrado BAFTA za Christopherja Plummerja v vlogi veselega vdovca.

Originalni opis filma:

It's 2003. Thirty-eight-year-old graphic artist Oliver Fields has just lost his father Hal Fields to cancer, after Oliver's mother Georgia Fields passed away five years earlier. Oliver is naturally a sullen man due to his growing up relationships with his parents (his mother who had a unique view on life) and watching his parents' cordial but somewhat distant relationship with each other, but is more so now because of his personal family losses. Oliver embarks on a relationship with Anna, a French actress, hoping that his re-energized relationship with Hal following Georgia's death, and Hal's new outlook on life during that time, will show Oliver how to act in a loving relationship. After Georgia's death, Hal came out of the closet and began to live with a joie de vivre that did not exist before, which included an open relationship with a much younger man named Andy. Oliver's relationship with Anna has other obstacles, including Anna's own vagabond lifestyle and Oliver needing to take care of who was originally Hal's very needy Jack Russell terrier, Arthur.
