ArtsEmerson the World on Stage presents: The Kids Are All Right
Nic and Jules are the average couple for most modern American families: raising two troubled teens in the suburbs of Southern California with life’s normal quirks and oddities. When their kids, Joni and Laser, secretly track down the lesbian couple’s donor father, each family member is forced to reexamine individual relationships with each other and redefine the unit as a whole. This contemporary, smart, relatable portrait of the American family was received with widespread acclaim, including two Academy Award nominations for Julianne Moore and Annette Bening in their roles as the mothers of this family. The star-studded cast also includes exceptional performances by Mark Ruffalo, Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson.
