Capital Celluloid - Day 90: Friday Apr 1, 2011

The Kids Are All Right (Cholodenko, 2010): Whirled Cinema London SE24, 8.30pm FREE

One of the hits from Sundance last year, this also played very well at the London Film Festival in the autumn. As you are no doubt aware it's a comedy-drama about a lesbian couple and the complications that arise when the previously anonymous sperm donor to their children comes back into their lives. The film garnered pretty much rave reviews everywhere.

Director Cholodenko has crafted an excellent script with co-writer Stuart Blumberg but this movie is chiefly remembered for three great performances by Annette Benning, Julianne Moore and the ever-dependable Mark Ruffalo.

The chief reason for choosing this particular screening of The Kids Are All Right, though, is that it is hosted by Whirled Cinema, a new film venue near Brixton which shows independent and art house films each weekend and is just the sort of spot this blog is keen to publicise. There are more details of what looks a very inviting space here and the bonus is that it is free once you sign up as a member.

Here's a reminder of how good The Kids Are All Right is.
