The Kids Are All Right
Directed by Lisa Cholodenko
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.
