THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT (Lisa Cholodenko, 2010)
In its own minor key it never misses a note. Everyone will have their own favourite performance. I was particularly struck by the way Julianne Moore does a lot of the heavy lifting. She shifts back and forth from comedy to hyper-detailed drama and never breaks a sweat.
Also - speaking of astonishing, hyper-detailed actressing, now nobody in Australia or America has an excuse to miss Certified Copy - still my only set of ***** for a 2010 premiere. Is it too early to brand it a masterpiece?
