  Absolutely Brilliant

This is an absolutely brilliant film. It is gripping from the beginning to the end. It is one of those emotional roller coasters that comes along once every few years. Superb acting by all the characters, especially both mothers. Well deserving of its globe awards.

  and we're all right too!

That, in the midst of a continuous string of Hollywood-produced superheroes movies, comics adaptations, tired franchises and unnecessary remakes, American cinema can still produce intelligent, mature and thought-provoking films should be cause for celebration. And it's darn entertaining too.

Nic and Jules are in a long-term relationship. They have two teenage kids: Joni and Laser. They clearly love each other, but domestic life - and its myriad small compromises and annoyances - has slowly but surely dulled the happy-family picture. The fact that Nic and Jules are two middle-aged women is neither an issue nor a statement (which by the way is refreshing and welcome). When the sperm-donor is contacted by his children and starts forging a relationship with them, the fragile balance of the whole family is shaken to its core.

This movie is a real delight. The situations and character motivations really rang true. The clever (but never smug) dialogue was delivered in a top-notch fashion by the brilliant cast. Although Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo were pitch-perfect, it's Annette Bening who amazes with a role that at first might appear thankless but ultimately breaks your heart. And congratulations to the two lead-ladies for discarding botox and multi-layered make-up and looking like real women rather than screen icons.

And did I say it was funny? Well, it really is. So if you like your entertaining to have a bit of heart and brain, that should be right up your alley.

Another one of those 'just observing from the outside studies of life in suburbia in a disfunctional odd ball family' etc etc. In trying to pin-point a good part of the film I find I can't and all I can really say is how appalling it is that in a world where people are starving to death that dross like this is aloud to be financed. There are truly some odd ball people out there folks... This is not charming, clever, interesting or worth watching, by the other reviews (none) it looks like was the only idiot to be suckered in!! How's your luck! Avoid like an unwarranted tax bill.
