Just read about two new movies where two sets of women play lovers.

Annette Bening and Julianne Moore star as partners and mothers in The Kids Are Alright.  The film is about their kids’ search for their sperm donor (played by Mark Ruffalo) altering the family dynamic forever.  Film is directed and co-written by Lisa Cholodenko and started shooting this week.

Cloudburst stars Brenda Fricker and Olympia Dukakis as long time lovers who break out of a nursing home and take a road trip.  The comedy starts filming this month in Nova Scotia.

Thank you for the update. I list Laurel Canyon as one of my favorite movies. And Brenda Fricker and Olympia Dukakis? Inspired casting.

I second Michelle’s comment about Brenda Fricker and Olympia Dukakis. Yay!

Cloudburst sounds like the best movie ever. They break out of a nursing home and take a road trip?! Awesome.

I’m definitely looking forward to “The Kids Are Alright”.
