Just in time for the Oscars, Chillfest, the mostly gay and lesbian film series of Jersey City, is proud to present The Kids Are All Right. See why out director Lisa Cholodenko's acclaimed film garnered Academy Award nominations for Best Actress (Annette Bening), Best Supporting Actor (Mark Ruffalo), Best Original Screenplay and Best Picture! Here's what critics have said:
– "The specifics of the story only underlie its general, and universal theme: Marriages and families can be hard work—and kind of worth it." - Newark Star-Ledger
– "Witty, urbane and thoroughly entertaining, "The Kids Are All Right" is an ode to the virtues of family, in this case a surprisingly conventional one even with its two moms, two kids and one sperm donor." - Los Angeles Times
– "Just about everyone who has been a parent, child or partner will find resonance in its bittersweet depiction of the joys and trials of lifelong intimacy." - Washington Post
