Slide 1: The New Family Comedy

Lisa Cholodenko’s comedy The Kids Are All Right celebrates core family values: the responsibility of people to be loving parents, of kids to be good children and of family members to be there for each other. The twist in this film is that the two parents are a lesbian couple, Nic (Annette Bening) and Jules (Julianne Moore). The drama is provided by the arrival on the scene of Paul (Mark Ruffalo), the Y-guy (as in Y chromosomes). Paul is the “sperm contributor” (the politically correct term for sperm donor), who helped Nic and Jules’ two children come into the world.
