Exclusive: The Kids Are All Right Poster
Sundance approved drama

27 September 2010  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

While it sounds like it should by rights be a biopic of The Who (and we'd love to watch that just to find out exactly how you blow up a toilet with dynamite), The Kids Are All Right is actually a comedy-tinged drama that went down a storm with the good folk at the Sundance Film Festival. It's out here next month and we've got the film's shiny new one-sheet to brighten up your afternoon.

Directed by Lisa Cholodenko (Laurel Canyon), The Kids Are All Right is a family drama that boasts a strong-looking cast - Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo amongst it - and a different skew on a plotline that'll be familiar-ish to anyone who sat through The Switch.


Moms Nic (Bening) and Jules (Moore) are a lesbian couple with two kids (Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson) they've conceived using sperm from the same donor. They're happy with status quo but, keen to find their birth father, the teenagers have other ideas. Cue footloose bachelor Mark Ruffalo, a serious clash of cultures and a whole new family dynamic.

The Kids Are All Right
is out in the UK on October 29.
