The Kids Are All Right Premieres at Sundance Film Festival to Rave Reviews

Director Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 25, 2010 to very positive reviews, resulting in one of the festival's most visible bidding war. Rumored suitors included Fox Searchlight, Sony Pictures Classics, The Weinstein Company, and Summit Entertainment; however, Focus Features (the specialty film unit of Universal Pictures) confirmed on Thursday that they had picked up distribution rights for the United States, the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Germany.

The film stars three-time Academy Award nominee Annette Bening, four-time Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska (starring in the upcoming Alice in Wonderland), Josh Hutcherson (starring in the upcoming Red Dawn), and Mark Ruffalo (starring in the upcoming Shutter Island).

HSI CEO/Chairman and Executive Producer Steven Saxton and Julianne Moore

Artist International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hollywood Studios International, was a production company for The Kids Are All Right, with HSI CEO Steven Saxton serving as an Executive Producer. Artist International Managing Director Joel Newton was on the project as a Co-Producer.

"Lisa delivered a wildly entertaining and important film, one we are very proud to be part of," commented Saxton.

"The Kids Are All Right fits perfectly in our mission to make films that succeed both artistically and commercially," said Joel Newton.

In a written statement, Focus Features' James Schamus said:

"Lisa has made an extraordinary gem of a film that combines comedic surprise with poignant emotional truth. Not only is The Kids Are All Right infectiously funny and touching, but it's also entirely accessible. We're confident that audiences everywhere will fall in love with this family, as brilliantly brought to life by a remarkable cast of actors."

Here are just a few of the great reviews already written about the film:

  • The Hollywood Reporter said "Sundance 2010 has been waiting for a breakout finally happened" and that the film was "much more than alright"
  • New York Magazine wrote "Annette Bening and Julianne Moore Wow the Fest"
  • The Wall Street Journal called the film a "heart-warming look at modern families"
  • The Los Angeles Times wrote the film "becomes a Sundance sensation"
  • Indie Wire said the film "shines at Sundance"
  • Screen Daily International said the film is "a consistently amusing delight"
  • Daily Variety called The Kids Are All Right one of Sundance's "hottest acquisition titles."
