The Kids Are All Right


Dir. Lisa Cholodenko (2010)
Serious comedy, full of good-natured innuendo, The Kids Are All Right gives adolescent coming-of-age and the battle of the sexes a unique twist, in part by creating a romantic triangle between a devoutly bourgeois lesbian couple (Annette Bening and Julianne Moore) and their merrily free-spirited sperm donor (Mark Ruffalo). Despite its ’60s rock-and-roll title, it’s a pretty conservative movie-particularly compared to Cholodenko’s previous works.
