1887 - The Kids Are All Right
My wife and I have been wanting to see this film since it was first announced. Big fans of all the lead actors, and the story was pretty interesting and compelling. Two lesbian's Mom's children (both from the same sperm donor) want to figure out who their father is - but when he enters back into their lives the family connects with him in ways that make it very uncomfortable for them to continue along like they have.
It's a film that never gets too heavy, but also delves into how difficult long term relationships are. The dynamics of family, and how addictive that lifestyle is even though on the surface it doesn't really seem all that appealing.
This is a great film for a night you just want to veg, but also watch something with substance. Give it a shot if you haven't already.
