The actors are to die for. Bening and Moore nail every nuance of a relationship going adrift. And Ruffalo is dynamite as a man keeping himself at a distance. Kids makes its own special magic. It's irresistible show more

It's not often you find a movie around a lesbian couple and their family that actually has big movie stars in it that actually makes it to the big screen. I thought it was a very well acted and real movie. I notice that some reviews here talk about how the sex scenes are uncomfortable. I wonder about that a lot seeing how many movies have sex in them...the only difference is that in this one you see both heterosexual and lesbian sex. Hope we continue to see more movies that portray lesbian and gay stories more on the big screen. well done.
This movie sucked!!!!
Julianne Moore was just AWFUL in this. I found her totally unbelievable, and her performance made me feel really uncomfortable. Annette Bening, on the other hand, was VERY good. And bravo! for having the guts to do a Hollywood film with no make-up. Unfortunately, Bening's performance is the only thing remotely worthy in this film. Don't waste your money ... wait till it comes out on cable or Comcast On Demand ...
