Sunrise Theater Presents "The Kids Are All Right"
The Sunrise Theater's SunFlix Series will present the critically acclaimed 2010 film "The Kids Are All Right" for an extended run beginning Friday, Oct. 22, and continuing Sunday, Oct. 24 through Oct. 31. (No show on Oct. 23 due to Met Live.)
Shows are at 7:30 p.m. on weekdays and 2:30, 5 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 30) and both Sundays. This comedy/drama stars Julianne Moore, Annette Bening, Mark Ruffalo, Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson. This film was directed by Lisa Cholodenko and released by Focus Features in July. It runs for 104 minutes and is rated R.
A synopsis of the film from the website says, "Nic and Jules (Annette Bening and Julianne Moore) are married and share a cozy suburban Southern California home with their teenage children, Joni and Laser (Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson). Nic and Jules gave birth to and raised their children, and built a family life for the four of them. As Joni prepares to leave for college, 15-year-old Laser presses her for a big favor. He wants Joni, now 18, to help him find their biological father. The two teenagers were conceived by the same anonymous sperm donor through artificial insemination.
"Against her better judgment, Joni honors her brother's request and manages to make contact with 'bio-dad' Paul (Mark Ruffalo), an easygoing restaurateur. The kids find themselves drawn to the confirmed bachelor's footloose style - especially in contrast to Nic, a principled doctor who has long established their house rules. Jules, who has been looking to start a new career in landscaping, also strikes up a rapport with Paul. As Paul comes into the lives of the forthright four, an unexpected new chapter begins for them as family ties are defined, re-defined, and then re-re-defined."
The historic Sunrise Theater, located at 250 NW Broad St. in Southern Pines, is nonprofit. Ticket prices are $7 for all shows. Refreshments, including beer and wine, are available, and all movies are commercial free.
