last week we saw a movie by graphic designer mike mills that is about a designer (ewan mcgregor!) whose father (christopher plummer)dies soon after comming out to his son..but not before he has had quite a good time exploring gay culture and life.
the film is lingering on my mind, and so i thought i would mention it here. one of my fave things were "Oliver's" sketches, and the perceptive comments of his jack russell terrier depicted on the screen as hilarious subtitles.
i would give this movie my wholehearted rec, but i need to mention it includes one of my pet peeves, which is that oliver's love interest is a mysterious and beautiful french girl (Melanie Laurent),whose dialog is mostly drowned out by soundtrack (ooo deep), and whose hair is perpetually ratty and unbrushed(sexy)..don't they have hairbrushes in france?
