‘The Kids Are Alright’ focuses on the importance of family

HollywoodNews.com: “The Kids Are Alright” is directed by Lisa Cholodenko (“High Art,” “Laurel Canyon”) from an original screenplay that she wrote with Stuart Blumberg (“Keeping the Faith”). The movie combines comedic surprise with poignant emotional truth in a funny, vibrant, and richly drawn portrait of a modern family.

Nic and Jules (three-time Academy Award nominee Annette Bening and four-time Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore) are married and share a cozy suburban Southern California home with their teenage children, Joni and Laser (Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson). 15-year-old Laser wants Joni, now 18, to help him find their biological father; the two teenagers were conceived by artificial insemination. Against her better judgment, Joni honors her brother’s request and manages to make contact with “bio-dad” Paul (Mark Ruffalo), an easygoing restaurateur. As Paul comes into the lives of the forthright four, an unexpected new chapter begins for them as family ties are defined, re-defined, and then re-re-defined.

Focus Features opens THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT in theatres in select cities on Friday, July 9th, and in additional cities throughout July. The movie is MPAA-rated “R” (for strong sexual content, nudity, language, and some teen drug and alcohol use) and has a running time of 106 minutes.
