The Kids Are Alright. Anti Lesbian Story

Honestly I couldn't wait to see 'The Kids Are Alright'
A lesbian themed movie with Julianne Moore. What more could you ask for.

And with all the reviews of the film and all that I really was ready to fall in love with it

But after watching it I suspect I may have seen the wrong movie.

Sure 'The Kids Are Alright' is about a lesbian couple.

And yes it has Julianne Moore in it, who I have a lot of respect for.


If there was ever a story about reasons not to have a lesbian relationship, this was it.

Let's look at a few Lesbian versus heterosexual parallels going on

Nic (played by Annette Benning) treats her wife Jules (the Julianne Moore character)with contempt and disrespect. Paul (Mark Ruffalo) on the other hand is genuinely interested in Jules point of view

Sex with Nic is ..... Lets not go there
Sex with Mark...... Amazing.

Need I go on

So in what way is this a lesbian interest movie?

The high point of the movie was Mark Ruffalo
