Hugely entertaining, frequently funny and genuinely moving, this is a sharply written comedy-drama with refreshingly original characters and terrific performances from all five leads.

Shadows on the Wall

Five of this year's best screen characters appear in this comedy-drama about a relatively ordinary family facing some unusual challenges. And while the premise seems extremely offbeat, it's actually beside the point.

There are few films as soulful and human as Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right. That a film can set itself apart from the pack by merely being human is somewhat depressing, but there you have it.

Channel 10 Australia

A smart, funny, insightful take on the dynamics of Modern Families. It taps into both the universal and specific dynamics of the family unit. Bening gives a career best performance.

The Australian

The Kids are All Right is funny, touching and honest, all the elements that make independent cinema so much more rewarding, most of the time, than the mainstream.

Thomas Caldwell
Cinema Autopsy

The Kids Are All Right is a film about marriage, family and parenthood and it explores these themes with far more integrity, insight and humour than many other films.

Julie Rigg
MovieTime, ABC Radio National

This is a witty and insightful film. Lisa Cholodenko has a talent for observational comedy; comedies which capture the zeitgeist, usually achieved by throwing together people with two different sets of expectations.

Sydney Morning Herald

Common to all Cholodenko's films is a fascination with the mayhem that can result when the chronically stitched-up come up against the amoral and fancy-free.

The Kids Are All Right gets at basic, underlying truths, and opens them up with both sly humour and brittle neediness. Lisa Cholodenko has found her home.

Leigh Paatsch
Herald Sun (Australia)

A shrewd, well-observed modern comedy about achieving acceptance with no exceptions, The Kids Are All Right is the freshest feelgood film to drop in quite some time.

Excellent performances, notably Ruffalo, fuel a fine family affair.

What makes this film, by Lisa Cholodenko, who co-wrote it with Stuart Blumberg, work, are the performances. Annette Bening is sublime.

I didn't take a lot away from the film but there are some wonderfully uncomfortable scenes that make it worth seeing.

Concrete Playground

A near masterpiece; part sex-comedy, part radiant and wry portrait of contemporary relationships.

FILMINK (Australia)

This intelligent, non-confronting film doesn't set out to change the world. Rather, it presents a compassionate view of family life today, without judgement or undue comment.

Trespass

One of the most compelling cinematic depictions of family life to come along for some time.

Sure, the kids are all right, but poor dad has been beaten to a pulp!

The screenplay is beautifully honest and well observed; not only is it truthful about human nature, it finds the humanity as well as the flaws in all the characters

Outrageously funny situations and two sterling performances make this smartly written film about an unconventional family a sure-fire winner.
