This film imaginatively explores the hilarity, confusion, and surprises of love through the evolving consciousness of Oliver. Oliver meets the irreverent and unpredictable Anna only months after his father Hal 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 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.
"Funny, touching and altogether extraordinary" -- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
""Endlessly original! Christopher Plummer is pitch-perfect. Ewan McGregor's best performance." -- Claudia Puig, USA Today
