The underdog hit of the summer--The Kids Are All Right--opened at the Little Theater last Friday, and it is packing the theater! When I attended on Saturday, I don't think there was a single empty seat left in the house. Beyond box-office buzz, this film is striking up discussions and debates across the country while viewers try to decipher its messages and work this particular queer family into their psyches. There are many such debates springing up online. In fact, there are at least three different conversations about this film going on right now on my Facebook home page.
Here are a few of the more interesting full articles I have seen so far: (spoiler warnings for both links)
"An Indie Hit's Sex Message" (The Daily Beast)
"‘Lesbian marriage movie’ shakes up US cinema" (france24.com)
More importantly, what do you think about it?
