see a movie this weekend: the kids are all right

hey hey! if you’re itching to get out of the house this weekend – i can definitely recommend going to see the kids are all right – which opens today in NYC and LA – it’s an excellent movie – and i love the fact two of the main characters are a lesbian couple played by award-winning actresses julianne moore and annette bening – but the movie isn’t about them being gay – their sexuality just happens to be part of the story which was quite refreshing – it’s simply a great tale about a modern day american family – thankfully it doesn’t try to be political in any fashion (there’s no soapbox here) as we all know (or should know!) families do come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors! it’s funny and touching at the same time – i can’t recommend it enough! popbytes over & out for now … xoxo

The Kids Are All Right is the heartfelt new comedy from acclaimed director Lisa Cholodenko, starring Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, and Mark Ruffalo. Two teenaged children (Alice in Wonderland‘s Mia Wasikowska and Journey to the Center of the Earth‘s Josh Hutcherson) get the notion to seek out their biological father and introduce him into the family life that their two mothers (Bening and Moore) have built for them. Once the donor (Ruffalo) is found, the household will never be the same, as family ties are defined, re–defined, and re–re–defined. The New York Times raves that it’s “a generous, nearly note–perfect portrait of a modern family,” and Entertainment Weekly calls the movie “funny, smart and sexy!”
