Beginners - Movie Review
Do you think you became who you are because of the way your parents purposely raised you? Sure - it is natural to think that. But after watchingBeginners today I now think it is also our observation of our parents as a couple that can also have a profound effect - both good and bad.
You can have a wonderful childhood. Your parents love you, take care of you, and fulfill your basic needs. But what happens when they don't really love each other? A child watching two parents who tolerate - not hate - and just merely exist in the same household can alter a person's path - irrecoverably. That is the premise of Beginners. It's isn't pretty but it is real. Perhaps too real for some.
