The Kids Are All Right

Annette Bening and Julianne Moore play a lesbian couple with teen kids.  The kids find their sperm donor sire (Mark Ruffalo), who invites himself into the family.  This is not what the moms had in mind.  Laughs and tears ensue.  It’s a smart dramedy with excellent performances, especially from Bening and Moore.  Bening certainly deserves an Oscar nod.  Mia Wasikowska is great as the daughter; she starred as Alice in Wonderland earlier this year and looks to have a great career ahead.

Because this was the most anticipated indie of the year. I had been expecting something more profound – and it’s not.  It’s a crowd pleaser and a good date movie that’s worth seeing, but not the game changer that I had been expecting.
