Beginners (2010)

A sort of portmanteau film featuring the same characters at different time periods.

In the present day, a graphics designer gets over the death of his dad. Last decade, his dad came out of the closet after becoming a widow. In the 60s, a young child witnesses the love his parents have for each other.

Watch this film for how it uses wry observational humour to counter the sense of fate and tragedy inherent in the portmanteau film structure.
