    Trailer for A Beginner's Guide to Endings. Duke White (Harvey Keitel) hasn't been an ideal father to his five boys. An inveterate gambler who never experienced a windfall he couldn't blow within twenty-four hours, he has come to the end of his rope, literally. Years ago, he signed up his three eldest sons for unsafe drug tests that turned out to have dire consequences: the boys' life expectancy have been substantially reduced. Upon receiving the news after their father's funeral, the sons return to their family home in Niagara Falls, where they respond to their eminent demises in different yet equally hilarious ways. Womanizing Cal (Scott Caan) is determined to hook up with Miranda (Tricia Helfer), the one girl who got away. Cautious Jacob (Paulo Costanzo), the only son with a real job, is determined to take every risk he didn't take earlier, usually accompanied by Duke's youngest son, Todd (Siam Yu). And finally there's his eldest, Nuts (Jason Jones), a boxer turned promoter who seems to have inherited his father's love of the calamitous long shot.moreless

    Feature trailer for A Beginner's Guide to Endings. Duke White (Harvey Keitel) hasn-t been an ideal father to his five boys. An inveterate gambler who never experienced a windfall he couldn-t blow within twenty-four hours, he has come to the end of his rope, literally. Years ago, he signed up his three eldest sons for unsafe drug tests that turned out to have dire consequences: the boys- life expectancy have been substantially reduced. Upon receiving the news after their father-s funeral, the sons return to their family home in Niagara Falls, where they respond to their eminent demises in different yet equally hilarious ways. Womanizing Cal (Scott Caan) is determined to hook up with Miranda (Tricia Helfer), the one girl who got away. Cautious Jacob (Paulo Costanzo), the only son with a real job, is determined to take every risk he didn-t take earlier, usually accompanied by Duke-s youngest son, Todd (Siam Yu). And finally there-s his eldest, Nuts (Jason Jones), a boxer turned promoter who seems to have inherited his father-s love of the calamitous long shot. Written and directed with a keen sense of father-son awareness, Jonathan Sobol-s A Beginners Guide to Endings features crackling dialogue and bravura performances. Keitel is hilarious and affecting as a man who can-t even broach a subject without calculating the odds. Caan is perfect as the cocksure Cal, who-s never experienced self-doubt and is now forced to wrestle with it. Costanzo is endearing as a man who never pursued excitement and now can-t get enough of it. Finally, Jason Jones delivers a letter-perfect incarnation of a man who finally realizes that his actions have an impact on others as well as himself. Rounding out the stellar cast are Wendy Crewson as Duke-s first wife and the always reliable J.K. Simmons as Uncle Pal, a preacher in a roadside chapel who tries to counsel the boys (usually to no avail). A Beginners Guide to Endings is a bawdy paean to those of us who have never entirely worked out ourmoreless

    The three sons of a reckless, recently-deceased gambler make a shocking discovery that causes them to reassess their lives as they race to make the most of the precious little time they have left. A hard living father of five, Duke White (Harvey Keitel) had a bad habit of gambling away every penny that came his way. Now Duke is dead, and he's got one last surprise for his three oldest sons: years ago, Duke signed up Cal, Jacob, and Nuts for a series of drug tests that drastically reduced their life expectancies. Upon learning that his time on Earth is quickly running out, Cal (Scott Caan) goes after Miranda (Tricia Helfer), the one girl he always regretted letting slip through his fingers. Former boxer Nuts (Jason Jones), meanwhile, decides to step back into the ring to prove that he can still deliver a crowd-pleasing punch. And then there's Jacob (Paulo Costanzo), the son who stopped taking risks after settling into a comfortable career. Now, with his youngest brother Todd (Siam Yu) by his side, Jacob is going to throw caution to the wind, and do all of the things he was too afraid to do before he knew that his days were numbered.moreless
