The Kids Are All Right


Have any of you seen this movie?  This is what I ventured off to watch yesterday.  It took my 'meh' mood and lifted it up a bit, even though the story itself was really dramatic and depressing.

What I really loved about the film is the setting.  It takes place in the suburbs of Southern California.  Mark Ruffalo's character, Paul (who, btw is pretty freaking attractive in the film. I've always been a little partial to him but in this film in particular, woah) is a restaurant owner who gardens and provides the produce for his super trendy restaurant that happens to have a pretty amazing outdoor seating area.  It's pretty much everything I wish I had...

Anyway, overall, the movie is good.  There are a lot of things left unanswered, which really bothers me about movies.  Things need to come around full circle you know?  So many side plots were developed and then just left unfinished about half way through the film.  Drives me crazy!  There was a lot of redeeming qualities to this movie though and I definitely recommend it.  I also highly recommend going to the movies alone at some point.  I'm happy I ended up treating myself to it!

The last movie I saw alone was "A Knight's Tale". I haven't been to the movies alone since. Clearly I need someone with me to guide me, otherwise my questionable taste in cinema leads me to see costumed tomfoolery. RIP Heath. But that movie sucked.

Eeesh, that is a bad choice for going to the movies solo.
