The Kids Are All Right
Already a festival favorite, as seen by it's enormous reception at this year Sundance and Berlin film festivals, this lesbian comedy has become one of the more interesting films of 2010. And I can't wait for it. Lisa Cholodenko (High Art, Laurel Canyon) is an insightful writer-director returning for a several year break from films, and stars Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo seem like a perfect combination for lesbian couple\male sperm donor roles, respectively. Also, I'm curious about the casting of Mia Wasikowska (the single bright spot in the dullard Alice in Wonderland) as Bening and Moore's daughter. All answers will hopefully and happely revealed when Focus Features opens the film July 7-- it seems like their trying to attract the Little Miss Sunshine slot.
