CBS Sunday Morning Awakes to Christopher Plummer

Posted June 06, 2011

On CBS Sunday Morning, David Edelstein in his glowing review of Mike Mills' Beginners took the opportunity to sing the praises of former The Sound of Music star Christopher Plummer. In addition to reminding us all what a culture treasure Mr. –– or Sir –– Plummer is, Edelstein stresses the miraculous turn he takes in Beginners:

The performance is unlike Plummer's others: Light and lithe, joyously uncomplicated, buoyed by his new life among the boys, in the open. He dies - I'm not spoiling it, his part is flashbacks - but there isn't a drop of self-pity in the man, or grandstanding in the performance.
