The Kids Are All Right (2010) is a drama starring Julianne Moore, Annette Bening, Mark Ruffalo and Mia Wasikowska.

This movie is really well acted with Moore and Bening on top form. They have great chemistry together and Ruffalo brings an easy charm to his role which mixes things up nicely.

Director Lisa Cholodenko (High Art) does a great job of mixing the lighter comedic moments with the intense drama. This movie has a really good feel about it even though there are very dramatic moments.

The script is sharp and the acting is of the highest quality. There is also quite a few adult moments. I really enjoyed this movie and hope more people find it.

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.

  This Film Is Alright

An original idea of two sperm donor kids set out to find their donor dad, and soon grow to like him and spend more time with him much to the annoyance of their two mothers.

I wouldn't really know where to place this film, it's got good acting, good script and storyline, a few laughs, but I'm just not sure which category it would fall under. Julianne Moore was great, as was the rest of the cast. I wouldn't say it's an amazing film, but it's worth a checking out.
