It’s Not Weird To Have A Man-Crush On A Guy With The Same Name As Me, Right?

So it turns out suggesting to your mum that The Kids Are All Right might be a fun movie to watch together is not the brightest idea in the world, especially if she happens to get incredibly uncomfortable with a) swearing, b) nakedness of any kind and c) same-sex relationships. All of these are in abundance in this movie. Occasionally simultaneously.

She’s not bigoted, it’s just that…well, she’s middle aged and British. She’s designed to be weird about these things.

On the other hand, she’s laughed enough times to assure me that it’s not offended her sensibilities too much. It certainly doesn’t hurt that it’s a pretty damn good movie with a coup of an adult cast in Julianne Moore, Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo.

And I will watch anything with Julianne Moore or Mark Ruffalo. Seriously. I’d watch him talking about paint drying for two hours because he’d just be so affable about it.

Also, I’m pretty sure I fell in love with his sideburns in Zodiac.
