Village Voice: The Kids Are All Right is Family Fun
Posted June 30, 2010
In the Village Voice, Ella Taylor spoke with director and co-screenwriter Lisa Cholodenko, along with her fellow screenwriter Stuart Blumberg, about the family story at the heart of their film The Kids Are All Right. Both talk about it being a personal film about family, even though the parents are both women. While neither was overly focused on the political implications of the film, Cholodenko admitted to caring about how her own family, particularly her young son, might feel. Speaking like a real mom, Cholodenko commented: "I hope he doesn't see it till he's old enough to get it, and I hope in some way he'll be proud and not embarrassed."
