The Kids Are All Right: Review


Annette Bening and Julianne Moore play Nic and Jules, a married couple with teenage children, in The Kids Are All Right.

(Her newest venture is landscape gardening.) Their daughter, Joni (Alice in Wonderland's radiant Mia Wasikowska), an A student about to leave the nest for college, feels the strain of high expectations.
