Two films that both had very positive buzz coming out of Sundance this year, The Kids Are All Right and Holy Rollers, now both have trailers to go along with that.
The Kids Are All Right, my personal favorite film from Sundance this year, is a comedy starring Annette Bening and Julianne Moore as lesbian mothers whose kids (Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson) seek out their biological father (Mark Ruffalo). It was picked up by Focus Features and will release on July 7. Holy Rollers, a drama starring Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Bartha as Hasidic Jews who deal ecstasy, was picked up by First Independent Pictures and is scheduled for release on May 21.
Hit the jump for the trailers and official plot descriptions.
The Kids Are All Right
Two teenaged children conceived by artificial insemination get the notion to seek out their birth father and introduce him into the family life that their two mothers have built for them. Once the donor is found, the household will never be the same, as family ties are defined, re-defined, and then re-re-defined. It’s directed and co-written by Lisa Cholodenko (Laurel Canyon).
Burgeoning star Jesse Eisenberg – after his recent turn in the hit Zombieland and his earlier stunning work in such specialty fare as The Squid and the Whale – stars as Sam Gold, a devoted yet wayward Hasidic Jew in late 90’s NYC, who becomes involved in an international ecstasy ring. The film is based loosely on true events. It’s directed by Kevin Asch.
