The Kids Are All Right

Lisa Cholodenko (2010)

15 Certificate


Our Score
A married lesbian couple have teenage children by the same anonymous sperm-donor father - Annette Bening, a doctor, is the practical, focused half of the pair, while Julianne Moore is a more scatty, creative type. Their already volatile relationship is tested further when their son seeks out his birth father - easy-going restaurateur Mark Ruffalo. The kids take to Ruffalo first, then, surprisingly, so do Bening and Moore, but when the latter embarks on a reckless affair with him, this unlikely love-in comes unstuck. The set-up is especially middle-class - Ruffalo grows his own organic food, Moore is a landscape gardener - but some pitch-perfect performances really bring out the emotion of a situation that will strike a chord with many. Best of all is Bening, capping even her performance in American Beauty, as a woman forced to face her partner's betrayal.


Lesbian couple Nic and Jules have two teenage children, who were both conceived by the same sperm donor. When the kids become curious about their father, they decide to involve him in the family's lives. However, Nic is not happy with the arrangement, placing a strain on the relationship. Comedy drama, with Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo.
