    Julianna Margulies, Miranda July, and Samantha Mathis were just a few of the guests who head to Tribeca Grand last night to check out a screening of Beginners, a new Ewan McGregor vehicle all about transitions and transformations.

    Ewan, best known for Trainspotting and Moulin Rouge,  plays Oliver, a man who only learns his father is gay upon the death of his mother. The father comes out to live this new life style before dying of cancer a few years later. Though it sounds depressing, it actually looks good.

    Thus far, critics have loved it.:

    "Deeply poignant and disarmingly personal."- Variety.

    "The movie's playfulness rubs off on the actors. Scenes crackle with life. The chemistry among all the actors is terrific." - Hollywood Reporter
