"The Kids Are All Right" is an awesome movie and one of my favorites of the year. It is about a lesbian couple, Nic (Annette Benning) and Jules (Julianne Moore), who are surprised to find out that their teenage children Joni (Mia Wasikowska) and Laser (Josh Hutcherson) want to contact their biological father. Joni and Laser meet their biological father, a man named Paul (Mark Ruffalo), and decide to introduce him to their mothers. As the family spends more time with Paul, Nic starts to feel left out, which causes problems in the family. I don't want to give too much away about the story. I loved this movie. I thought the characters and dialogue were realistic, and I felt like I was watching a real family, which doesn't happen often in movies about families. Everyone in the cast, especially Annette Benning and Julianne Moore, was wonderful. "The Kids Are All Right" is one of the best movies of 2010 and I really recommend watching it.
