It’s as good as the critics are saying. An intelligent adult movie. Annette Bening is very convincing as a lesbian – not that I’m an expert or anything on that. She and long-time partner Julianne Moore have a teenage son and daughter from a sperm donor.

It’s 75% comedy and 25% drama. The ending is neither happy nor sad, it just is – sort of like life.
