The Kids Are All Right: Opens July 30

Annette Bening and Julianne Moore are long time partners with two teenaged children by artificial insemination. When the biological father enters the picture, the household will never be the same, as family ties are defined, re—defined, and re—re—defined. Here’s what the critics are saying:

 “The movie we’ve been waiting for all year: a comedy that doesn’t take cheap shots, a drama that doesn’t manipulate, a movie of ideas that doesn’t preach. It’s a rich, layered, juicy film, with quiet revelations punctuated by big laughs.” Slate

 It is outrageously funny without ever exaggerating for comic effect, and heartbreaking with only minimal melodramatic embellishment.” The New York Times

 Movies like The Kids Are All Right — beautifully written, impeccably played, funny and randy and true — don’t come along very often.” Boston Globe

 “The Kids Are All Right ranks with the most compelling portraits of an American marriage, regardless of sexuality, in film history.” Salon
