Best Summer Date Ideas: Movie Dates

'Two for the 9pm show, please': 10 summer date movies worth checking out.

#24: 'Beginners' (June 3)

STARS: Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer, Mélanie Laurent

McGregor plays a guy whose father (Plummer) announces, after 44-years of marriage, that he is not only gay but also dying of cancer. His dad's new outlook on life changes his own for the better, and helps McGregor navigate a budding relationship with an exciting new girl (Laurent, so memorable in "Inglourious Basterds"). Plummer is getting great advance buzz for his performance here, which could have the same cross-over appeal that last year's gay-themed "Kids Are All Right" did.

Up Next: 'Submarine'
