DVD: The Kids are All Right, for retail & rental (Universal)

A "lesbian comedy-drama" it may be, but the great virtue of this tale of two mums (Annette Bening and Julianne Moore) rocked by the appearance of their long-lost sperm donor is that it presents sexuality as a fact, not an issue.

Rather, what raises this above so much comparable US indie fare is a script that seamlessly intertwines farce and naturalism and the delicately frayed, wholly lived-in performances of its ensemble.
