I’m starting to really like mainstream lesbian movies. I know, right? Crazy.
My cable provider was kind enough to add a Gay and Lesbian category to their lineup. Naturally I was delighted! Their line up is pretty awesome, too. I was scrolling through and came across quite a few old favorites. This girl wanted some new stimuli so, an unseen flick was in order. The Kids Are Alright stars Julianne Moore and Annette Benning as a married lesbian couple with two children who want to meet their sperm donor.…that’s gay enough to spark my interest.
This movie is funny, endearing, realistic and beautiful. Most times I avoid the word beautiful when referring to movies. It’s grates the nerves kinda like when chefs describe their food as sexy. What’s that all about…lol. This time though, beautiful is appropriate.
Mark Ruffalo is perfect as the seemingly cool donor dad. He shines like John Travolta’s fresh suit in Saturday Night Fever. He even has a hot girlfriend, remember Ya Ya from America’s Top Model? Yep. They have sexy little love scene. I loved it. Can you see my naughty grin?
Lisa Cholodenko is an amazing director. I was happy to see her name pop up on screen. She directed High Art back in the day and I still love that movie.
