Acting yes, story no.,
This review is from: The Kids Are All Right (DVD)
In terms of acting, it's a great film. Each character is fleshed out to the point where they seem like real people. The problem with slice of life pictures like this, is they often don't offer a reason to watch. It's so much like life that is boring. Nothing ever happens. I don't mean that there needs to be explosions, or car chases or death. But beyond a few arguments, there is nothing here to make someone feel like the story should have ever been told, if there were a story at all.
Resolution... not really.
Just, a few bickers, a flighty affair, and then, nothing.
Nothing is changed, solved or resolved.
Again, actors are great, the story is not.
