See this film: The Kids Are All Right at the Brattle

Lisa Cholodenko won't win a Best Director Oscar on Sunday night, as Kathryn Bigelow did last year for The Hurt Locker. Cholodenko didn't get nominated. But her film The Kids Are All Right could win for Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor (Mark Ruffalo), and Best Actress (Annette Bening). All the more reason to see this brilliant reconfiguration of family values as the children of a lesbian couple track down their biological dad. Then stick around for Greek director Giorgos Lanthimos's bizarre and subversive Dogtooth, an assault on family values if there ever was one, and wonder how it ever got nominated for Best Foreign Language Film. They screen at the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge | The Kids Are All Right: February 25 @ 7:30 pm + February 26 @ 7:45 pm; Dogtooth: February 25 @ 9:45 pm; February 26 @ 6 + 10 pm | $9.75; $7.75 students; $6.75 seniors | 617.876.6937 or
