Mark Ruffalo can get away with even banging a lesbian Julianne Moore in this film - strange that the film didn't end with him taking the virginity of his own daughter while the son was giving a rating on it (THAT would at least have been a big shock) as this film ends up as a typical Hollywood "the family can overcome all odds" film and the small hints of originality is thrown out of the window.
Could have been great, but the turn the plot takes during the second act ruins the whole thing. It cheapens what is an otherwise warm and down-to-earth story. The performances are all good, though, but I have a feeling there are things here that won't satisfy those more knowledgeable about LGBT issues, and understandably so.
a film that decenters and minimizes the severely underrepresented subject of lesbian marriage to focus instead on the unbearably overrepresented subjects of heterosexual infidelity and white suburban adolescent angst...the first prominent lesbian film by a lesbian director in years and it's all about the sperm donor? Sigh.
