 Sarasota Film Festival’s Filmmaker TributeSaturday, April 16Sarasota Opera House 61 N. Pineapple AvenueAn evening dedicated to the celebration of the art of film.  Featuring a star studded line-up of presenters and honorees. Christopher Plummer will be on hand to accept this year’s Cinema Master Award on along with other special guests.

 Sarasota Closing Night Film Saturday, April 17 Regal Cinemas Hollywood 20

Mike Mills’ “Beginners”, a Focus Features release, has been selected as the Closing Night Film. “Beginners”, starring Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer, and Mélanie Laurent, imaginatively explores the hilarity, confusion, and surprises of love through the evolving consciousness of Oliver (Mr. McGregor). Oliver meets the irreverent and unpredictable Anna (Ms. Laurent) only months after his father Hal (Mr. Plummer) has passed away. This new love floods Oliver with memories of his father who – following 44 years of marriage – came out of the closet at age 75 to live a full, energized, and wonderfully tumultuous gay life. The upheavals of Hal’s new honesty, by turns funny and moving, brought father and son closer than they’d ever been able to be. Now Oliver endeavors to love Anna with all the bravery, humor, and hope that his father taught him.  The film is a must see!
