The Kids Are Alright – 4 stars

The Kids Are Alright gives us Julianne Moore and Annette Bening as two middle-aged lesbians with two teenage children.  The kids decide they want to meet their father (Mark Ruffalo, who is actually just their sperm donor).  Very funny, occasionally poignant, and refreshingly devoid of the kind of politics you might fear from such an endeavor.  Bening is particularly good as the controlling, a little frightened and responsible member of the couple
