One of the biggest breakout hits to come out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, was the comedy-drama “The Kids Are All Right”. It was such a hit, the film netted the biggest sale at the festival. The art-house studio, Focus Features, bought the film’s distribution rights for $4.8 million.
“The Kids Are All Right” centers around a lesbian couple played by Julianne Moore and Annette Bening who have two teenage children conceived by artificial insemination. When their oldest child played by Vanity Fair 2010 “IT” girl, Mia Wasikowska, turns 18, she seeks out her parents’ sperm donor. Enter adorably awkward, Mark Ruffalo.
As expected, when Ruffalo’s character enters their lives, a little bit of chaos and comedy ensues. By the looks of the trailer, the film looks to be an entertaining comedic watch. The movie doesn’t hit theaters for a limited release until July 7, 2010, but you can watch the trailer below.
Two teenaged children (Mia Wasikowska, Josh Hutcherson) conceived by artificial insemination get the notion to seek out their birth father and introduce him into the family life that their two mothers (Annette Bening and Julianne Moore) have built for them. Once the donor (Mark Ruffalo) is found, the household will never be the same, as family ties are defined, re-defined, and re-re-defined.
