Los Angeles for Beginners
Posted June 01, 2011 to photo album "Los Angeles for Beginners"
Beginners not only writes a poignant postcard to contemporary Los Angeles, but maps out a personal landscape for writer/director Mike Mills.
He takes her on dates to Elysian Park, and that really connects to the LA River. I walk in Griffith Park all the time. Part of the film was me trying to make LA into a real character, a real place that makes geographic sense. So if your girl is hanging out down at the Biltmore hotel, where are you going to take her for a quick walk? Elysian Park. And it’s gorgeous with the Eucalyptus trees and the light ––and it was pretty damn cheap.
