New On DVD: The Kids are All Right ... 

The Kids Are All Right

On the list of Nice Things You Might Have Missed add The Kids Are All Right. Here's another chance to see it.

This lovely summer 2010 release co-stars Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo in some of their best work. Bening and Moore are partners whose two teenagers set out to find and get to know their biological father (Ruffalo). Director Lisa Cholodenko waited for more than a year for Ruffalo to become available for the part. The movie explores the blurred definitions of parenthood, responsibility and trust.

Expect the movie to make a lot of critics' choice lists for 2010, and Bening should be singled out come award time for another great performance. Though a fair number of people weren't thrilled with the fact that the movie doesn't have a particularly warm and fuzzy ending, that's exactly why this messy reality-based comedy is recommended.
