Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo in The Kids Are All Right trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I love it when you sit down and watch a trailer that you have zero expectations for and then it surprises you and makes you excited about the film. It makes you want to shake the trailer-editor’s hand. I think a lot of people will fall into that category when they watch THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT with Mia Wasikkowska, Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Annette Bening and Josh Hutcherson. The film is about a lesbian couple (Moore and Bening) that have two children (Wasikowska and Hutcherson) with the help of an anonymous sperm donor (Ruffalo). But when the kids get older, they find their father and he ends up disrupting their lives in a humorous way.
This will be Masikowska’s first movie since ALICE IN WONDERLAND (although I think she filmed this before Alice), and from the trailers at least, she seems to do a pretty good job. Lisa Cholodenko directs the film which opens July 7th.
