L.A. artist Oliver (a moody Ewan McGregor) grapples with his elderly dad's belated coming-out. Christopher Plummer delights as the father, and Melanie Laurent charms as a free-spirited actress Oliver falls for. The romantic ending is a bit forced, but the father-son dynamic makes for a touching drama. (Universal, $30)
