The next screening of the Westport Film Club will take place in Westport Cineplex on Wednesday October 5 at 8.45pm with a screening of Beginners. From Mike Mills, the writer/director of Thumbsucker, comes a new comedy drama about how deeply funny and transformative life can be, even in its most serious moments. Beginners unfolds through two intertwined storylines of Oliver and his father, Hal: in the present day, Oliver grudgingly attends a Halloween party where he meets Anna, an alluring French actress.

I was merely continuing a tradition. She was Anne Gregory and during her childhood at Coole Park, “every year John Quinn, Grandma’s great friend in New York, used to send a great case of apples to us.” So it is recorded in Anne’s beautiful book Me and Nu, Childhood at Coole. ‘Nu’ was Anne’s sister, Catherine. If you haven’t read Me and Nu, treat yourself to a copy for the New Year. It is still in print after nearly 40 years.
