It’s all about family.

The most talked-about movie at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, and the winner of the Teddy Award for Best Feature Film at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival, The Kids Are All Right is directed by Lisa Cholodenko (High Art, Laurel Canyon) from an original screenplay that she wrote with Stuart Blumberg (Keeping the Faith). The movie combines comedic surprise with poignant emotional truth in a funny, vibrant, and richly drawn portrait of a modern family.

Nic and Jules (three-time Academy Award nominee Annette Bening and four-time Academy Award nominee 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 – or, when referred to jointly by Joni, “Moms” – 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 donor 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.

    Sergio, ex stuntman del cinema infortunatosi sul set di un film americano, per sbarcare il lunario si arrangia con impieghi fantasiosi, come fare il Centurione al Colosseo, mentre la sorella Maria con cui divide l’appartamento, ‘lavora’ da casa per una hot-line erotica. Due vite alla deriva, finché un giorno a cambiare le cose ci pensa Milan, immigrato clandestino bielorusso, che stravolgerà la loro esistenza. Pur di lavorare Milan è disposto a diventare lo “schiavo” di Sergio, sostituendosi a lui nel ruolo di “Centurione” al Colosseo. L’intraprendente extracomunitario diventerà ben presto l'idolo dei turisti anche perché, per battere la concorrenza, Milan – ingegnere nel suo paese - costruisce una biga come quella del film “Ben Hur”, grande attrattiva per i turisti. Lo straordinario incontro si trasformerà in una lucrosa occasione di guadagno per Sergio, e in una improbabile storia di amore per Maria dalle conseguenze tanto disperate quanto comiche.

    La película transcurre en el mes de abril del año 2005. Víctor, un carretillero de 17 años que trabaja en el famoso Mercado 4 de la ciudad de Asunción, se distrae imaginando ser famoso y admirado en la televisión de un puesto de ventas de DVD en pleno Mercado 4, lo que causa la perdida de un cliente a manos de otro carretillero que se le adelantó. El mundo del mercado es hostil, competitivo y hay miles como él esperando llevar las compras de los clientes a cambio de una pequeña remuneración. Victor entiende que necesita moverse para conseguir algo de dinero ese día. Entonces recibe una propuesta algo inusual, transportar 7 cajas de las que desconoce su contenido, a cambio de la mitad de un billete rasgado de 100 dólares. La otra mitad del dinero se le entregaría cuando éste termine su trabajo. Con un teléfono celular en préstamo, que utiliza el contratista para ir marcando por cual calle trasladarse, Víctor emprende el viaje. Cruzar las 8 manzanas que cubre el mercado parecía fácil pero las cosas se le van complicando: Le roban una caja, pierde el teléfono celular y la policía rodea el mercado buscando algo que él ignora por completo. A esto se suma un grupo de carretilleros dispuestos a escoltar las cajas por una suma ínfima de las ganancias. Sin saber, Víctor y sus perseguidores se van involucrando en un crimen del que no saben nada: la causa, la víctima y el victimario. Se hace de noche y Víctor entiende que ahora es cómplice de algo demasiado delicado y peligroso. La necesidad entonces le obliga a correr, a gritar, o simplemente a callar.
