You don’t want to miss this event and one of the many perks of Fort Worth’s culture: checking out films put on by The Lone Star Film Society. Here is a synopsis of the film
Nic and Jules (three-time Academy Award nominee Annette Bening and four-time Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore) are the married mothers of two teenagers, Joni and Laser (Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson), who were born through the use of artificial insemination. When 15-year-old Laser decides he’d like to find and meet his biological father, Paul (Mark Ruffalo), the quintet is forced to redefine what it means to be a family.
The winner of the Teddy Award for Best Feature Film at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival, The Kids Are All Right is directed by Lisa Cholodenko (High Art, Laurel Canyon) from an original screenplay that she wrote with Stuart Blumberg (Keeping the Faith.) The movie combines comedic surprise with poignant emotional truth in a funny, vibrant, and richly drawn portrait of a modern family.
