A good watch for families with older, more mature teens.
The Kids Are All Right delves into a different side of the family story. It is enriching and entertaining to watch the struggles and triumphs of Nic and Jules's family. The casting choices were perfect, including: Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, and Josh Hutcherson (he has always been one of my favorite actors, very cute too). The language was strong but perfectly poised and placed in the proper instances (not used senselessly). The main thing to look out for with this film is definitely the sexual content. There is plenty of sex between multiple characters and breasts are visible at times. At one point two teens find a vibrator, which is briefly shown, and a pornographic movie from which bits and pieces are shown. Early on in the movie, these same teens are seen snorting a crushed pill. There is also teen drinking at a party though it is only briefly viewed. A woman appears to, at times, drink a little bit too much. This causes bickering between her and her partner. Laser (Josh Hutcherson) and Jonie (Mia Wasikowska) sometimes push against the limit with their moms, but they still all love each other. I don't know if I would watch this more than once, but if you are considering watching, I encourage you to do so.
