Jack Goes Confidential: Bening, Moore Deploy Marital Aids in ‘The Kids Are All Right’

THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT— but Mom and Mom?

Annette Bening and Julianne Moore play lesbian moms experiencing midlife crisis.

More about that later.

They’re also the parents of Mia Wasikowska (ALICE IN WONDERLAND) and her younger brother Josh Hutcherson—both products of artifical insemination.

Then Josh gets the notion to track down their birthfather.

But since according to the law he’s still to young, he gets 18 year-old sister Mia involved. Together track the birthfather (Mark Ruffelo) and introduce him (Mark Ruffelo) to the moms.

A rather awkward situation at best as, as Ruffelo now tries to bond his way into the family and redefine—make that re-RE-define the family ties.

Meanwhile back to Bening and Moore’s midlife crisis.

Their sex lives these days need a little extra ooomph. So marital aids, in the form of gay male porn DVDs, seem to help Julianne as she ‘services’ Annette in a round of undercover carpet munching.

    Jack, What’s the deal with such a small opening here in KC for this critically acclaimed film? Will it expand to more theaters next week?

    Small opening? I’m not surprised. I recall it was the same with “Brokeback Mountain”. You can’t make movies with gay folk in them toooo accessible. Turbo-parents would freak out if there was a chance their lil ones at the multiplex might accidentally wander into the “wrong” movie.

    P.S. Jack…really…”carpet munching”?

    Greg,
    This is afterall a ‘speciality picture’ released by Focus Features and being ‘platformed out.’
    It opened in key markets several weeks ago then added additional markets last week.
    Markets 25 to around 50 come on board this week. The rest of the country during the next couple of weeks.
    It’s definitely a ‘word-of-mouth’ pix.
    And if grosses warrant it I’m sure they’ll expand the K.C. track to additional local screens.
