Critic Reviews for The Kids Are All Right
I want to high five the person who cast Benning and Moore as a couple. They're scenes are the most delicious parts of the film.
We're shown real life problems in a fictional story that gives us real life solutions. Bravo Lisa, your film is more than all right.
Bening hoists this heavy-handed dramedy high with a burst of superhuman strength. And all you can do is sit in awe.
A twist on the traditional family drama, where every character has depth and deserves redemption.
Audience Reviews for The Kids Are All Right
I don't know why this film is labeled a comedy since it has nothing to laugh about. In fact, it is a little drama that wants to make you feel liberal accepting a family of lesbians, but the characters are poorly developed, the conflicts are artificial and clichéd, and the story lacks dramatic impulse.
Annette Bening gives a stunning performance, but it's also a mix of situations and a high level of authenticity and tension that allow for The Kids Are All Right to shine. It is an enjoyable, and ultimately, heartwarming watch.
TKAAR is sort of the most perfect dramedy I've seen on the subject of marriage and family values.
The cast of "modern characters" are all incredibly colorful in their own right but through their interactions with each other become truly authentic. Their rounded/layered characterizations is what really makes the film shine, transcending the politically provoking/gimmicky premise.
It's a great story, that manages to map the sophisticated issues and struggles of each character gracefully without feeling staged whilst delivering a satisfying ending that isn't obnoxiously hollywood.
Also I'd like to add, the film is outright hilarious! Which balances very well with the heavy drama explored through and through.
