Us Rating: ***

L.A. artist Oliver (a moody Ewan McGregor) grapples with his 75-year-old father's belated coming-out. Christopher Plummer delights as the late-blooming parent embracing a gay lifestyle, while Melanie Laurent charms as the free-spirited actress Oliver meets at a party. The film's romantic ending is a bit forced, but the exploration of the father-son dynamic makes this a touching drama.
