“Kids Are All Right,” with Bening and Moore, announces DVD date

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: A debate has been brewing in Oscar prognosticator circles recently regarding the chances of both Julianne Moore and Annette Bening claiming Best Actress nominations for their work in Lisa Cholodenko’s “The Kids Are All Right.”

In a few weeks, we’re going to be able to revisit the character-driven relationship comedy and judge for ourselves which actress deserves a shot at the Academy Award.

That’s because Universal Studios Home Entertainment plans to release kids on Blu-ray and DVD on Nov. 16, just in time for your own dysfunctional family to pop in “Kids” after Thanksgiving dinner and spend a little time with Moore and Bening’s dysfunctional family. Cholodenko’s film follows the teenage children of a lesbian couple who stir the pot when they seek out their birth father (Mark Ruffalo).
