A modern family struggles to maintain balance in this pitch-perfect comedy. — Suzanne Tenner/Focus Features

The Kids Are All Right
Directed by Lisa Cholodenko
Rated R
Runtime: 106 mins


If love stories are about people muddling through the thicket of commitment, re ­ calibrating their relationship as life throws its curve balls, and fiercely protecting those they love, then it's hard to come up with one more real — and raw — than Bening and Moore as the "Momses." The couple's happiness is put at risk when their children seek out their biological dad.

We Also Loved: Blythe Danner and Richard Dreyfuss, The Lightkeepers; Julianna Margulies and Andy Garcia, City Island; Ruth Sheen and Jim Broadbent, Another Year; Naomi Watts and Sean Penn, Fair Game.
