Smoke and Fire

I really want The Kids Are All Right to be good.  I think it’s really important that there be movies that take place in the full variety of families, without being message movies about the shape of those families.  But is it me, or is there not a ton of sexual chemistry between Annette Benning and Julianne Moore?

Maybe I’m seeing things.  They have some good comedic chemistry.  But I feel like there should be some heat there.  I want to believe in and be invested them as a full, multifaceted couple so Mark Ruffalo’s arrival in their lives can be a threat to something we care about.
