The Kids Are AlrightStarring Annette Bening and Juliane Moore, Mark Ruffalo
Nic and Jules are in a long term, committed, same-sex relationship. Nic, a physician, needs to wield what she believes is control, whereas Jules, under that control, is less self-assured. They have two teen-aged children, Joni, who is Nic's biological child, and Laser, who is Jules' biological child. A big-hearted, sexy and uproariously funny movie that combines comedic surprise with poignant emotional truth. 2010, rated R. Comedy/Drama.
My Week With MarilynStarring Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne, Emma Watson
In the summer of 1956, 23-year-old Colin Clark, determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl, the film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe. When his diary account was published, one week was missing. This is the story of that week: an idyll in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work. Based on the diaries of Colin Clark. 2011, rated R. Biography/Drama. (In my opinion, Michelle Williams should have won an oscar for this.)
