About the film:
The Kids Are All Right is the heartfelt new comedy from acclaimed director Lisa Cholodenko, starring Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, and Mark Ruffalo. Two teenaged children (Alice in Wonderland's Mia Wasikowska and Journey to the Center of the Earth's Josh Hutcherson) get the notion to seek out their biological father and introduce him into the family life that their two mothers (Bening and Moore) have built for them. Once the donor (Ruffalo) is found, the household will never be the same, as family ties are defined, reódefined, and reóreódefined. The New York Times raves that it's "a generous, nearly noteóperfect portrait of a modern family," and Entertainment Weekly calls the movie "funny, smart and sexy!"
Rated R for strong sexual content, nudity, language and some teen drug and alcohol use.
