I’m pleased to see coverage of The Kids Are All Right popping up all over the media. (My own review is here.) I wanted to highlight a couple of interviews with director Lisa Cholodenko and many in the cast, including Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Josh Hutcherson, and Mia Wasikowska.
Below is comedian Bridget McManus doing the interviews for After Ellen. I particularly like how Moore says she and Bening brought their real-life experience as moms to their roles.
After the jump is the Advocate’s similar session.
I hope either or both of these clips will convince you (if my own review didn’t) that the whole “lesbian has an affair with a man” subplot stays far away from the dreaded “all a lesbian needs is a man” myth. Really. Go see this film. Happily, it will be opening at more theaters across the country soon—here’s a list.
