The Kids Are All Right’s Lisa Cholodenko in Out

Posted July 27, 2010

Out Magazine hosts a short profile of Lisa Cholodenko, the director/co-writer of The Kids Are All Right on their website: Barry Walters’ “Lisa Cholodenko: Hope Springs Maternal.” Walters speaks to the filmmaker about herself being a mother and the limitation of earlier lesbian/gay film, as well as where she gets her cinematic sense of humor:

Stuart [Blumberg, the film’s cowriter] and I love those films by Hal Ashby and Billy Wilder that had real humanity and truth to them,” Cholodenko says of inspirations like Harold and Maude and The Apartment. “They could illuminate something about the human experience but were absurd and accentuated, and so they left you in this unstable place where you’re kept engaged.”
