FRANKLIN AVENUE CONTEST: Soundtrack and Book to Beginners
"Thumbsucker" director Mike Mills is behind the new indie feature "Beginners," which hits theaters on June 3. The movie stars Ewan McGregor as a graphic designer who specializes in record covers. (Being married to a graphic designer who specialized for years in recording packages, that hits close to home for the Franklin Avenue crew.)
McGregor plays Oliver, who finds new love just months after the death of his father. "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 movie blurb reads.
A companion book contains all the drawings which Mike Mills drew, and that Oliver (played by Ewan) works with in the film. Via Focus Features, we have a prize package for one Franklin Avenue reader: Beginners: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack as well as Drawings From the Film Beginners By Mike Mills. Simply email us at our Yahoo email address (to your right) and the Blogger Baby 2.0 will pick a name out of a hat. Happy movie-going!
