Not so great from a gay perspective,
This review is from: The Kids Are All Right [DVD] (DVD)
Yes you think.... two fantastic actresses playing a lesbian couple....how amazing to have a mainstream movie with a normal lesbian couple.
NOT SO. As a lesbian I have to say I get a little offended that lesbian movies seem to have to be centred around `drama' and `affairs'. Can we not just have a movie about lesbians that is light hearted and truly representative of the average lesbian couple?
This movie could have been fantastic but unfortunately this movie is completed unrealistic. You know if you're a lesbian it tends to mean you don't want to have relations with a man unless you are bisexual. The same way as a heterosexual would probably not have relations with the opposite sex.
For the average lesbian hoping to enjoy a film about a happy family with gay parents this film is a nightmare.
Julianne Moore's character's reaction to the situation was ridiculous and frankly this movie is just way to pretentious for its own good.
I really did not enjoy this movie...when I really, really wanted to. A real shame.
