The Kids Are All Right (R)


The mid-life parenting crisis of a lesbian couple (Julianne Moore and Annette Bening) amid the appearance of the sperm-donor father (Mark Ruffalo) is the cornerstone for a memorable comedic family drama by writer/director Lisa Cholodenko. Precise plotting, canny dialogue and spot-on production design compliment solid performances from the lively ensemble cast. A thoroughly cohesive and entertaining movie.
