Since she made her debut with 1998's High Art, director Lisa Cholodenko has been on a mission to tell personal, family-oriented dramas, continuing with 2002's Laurel Canyon and the upcoming comedy-drama, The Kids Are All Right. Kids tells the story of two mothers (Annette Bening and Julianne Moore) whose 18-year-old daughter (Alice in Wonderland's Mia Wasikowska) decides to make contact with the sperm donor (Mark Ruffalo) that is the father to her and her brother (Josh Hutcherson). Usually the sole screenwriter on her movies, Kids marks the first time Cholodenko has co-written a screenplay (with Stuart Bluberg). Cholodenko told ComingSoon that bringing Bluberg onto the project helped give the story a more personal angle, the continuing hallmark of her directorial work.
