One of the films that got rave reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was director Lisa Cholodenko’s (High Art, Laurel Canyon) The Kids Are All Right. The film is about two teenage children Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) and Josh Hutcherson (Journey to the Center of the Earth, Red Dawn) that decide to track down their donor father (Mark Ruffalo) as they were both conceived artificially by their two mothers (Annette Bening and Julianne Moore). Once they locate him, their household will never be the same. Like I’ve said when I posted my interviews with director Lisa Cholodenko and Mia Wasikowska, I loved this movie and I think it’s going to be remembered at the end of the year during Award season.
Anyway, I recently got to speak with Mark Ruffalo and we talked about got he got involved in The Kids Are All Right, the difference between promoting something you’re proud of and something you’re not, and we also reminisced about one of my favorite movies Zodiac (which he’s great in) and gave me the latest update on Kenneth Lonergan’s long delayed Margaret. Hit the jump to check out what he had to say:
