The Kids Are All Right is a Drama Comedy that I missed seeing when it was released in 2010. It is by sure a masterpiece, one we all need to see.
From the acting to the story everything in the movie added up to an ending that will make you wonder about the things we put at risk just for the sake of satisfying an impulse.

Knowledge is power and can also mar you if not handled wisely that is what this lesbian family learned the hard way. The movie is about a lesbian couple Nic (Annette Bening) and Jules (Julianne Moore) who had two kids via a sperm donor. Both party had a child each, and both got to experience what it was like to be a mother (that is carry a child for nine months).
The movie then fills in the gap, no matter how much gay parenting may look in the view of the parties involved, when children are added into the mix, there will come a time when the children will want to know what it was like to have the other sex involved in their parenting.

The boy Laser (Josh Hutcherson) was curious to know who his father was, and he and his sister (Joni played by Mia Wasikowska) traced him and found him. Their father Paul (Mark Ruffalo) was cool, but in the end his presence in a family that has been together for over 18 years ended up almost wrecking the family.

Impulses can be good, but from my experience and what I saw from this movie, it pays to think before you act, your actions no matter how selfish they are (that is, you believe you are not hurting anyone) can end up being a mark in your life, something that you will not forget easily and regret all the more eventually.

The high point in this movie is the story, it is well crafted to get your attention and keep it, then there is the acting by Annette Bening and the other ensemble crew, it was masterful and tasteful. Bening won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for her role in the movie.
The movie also won the Golden Globe award for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, and it was nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. It is a universal acclaimed hit, and it was a box office success.

This may not be the movie for you, if you are not one who loves the drama genre, but if you are interested in seeing a movie with wonderful acting and story, I advise you see this.
