The Kids Are All Right
Annette Bening is my new screen goddess (sorry Merryl...) Her string of movies lately have shown her incredible range and ability to negotiate comedy and drama flawlessly, usually within the same role (The Women notwithstanding). In this spiritual sequel to Brokeback Mountain, she does it again. Yeah, Julianne Moore and the rest of the cast do a great job (kids included), but it's Bening who holds it all together. The women are thoroughly believable (I actually know of lesbian couples that look like them), even if a little clichéd. Not to be missed.
