The Kids Are All Right-Great Movie, Great Soundtrack!

I saw The Kids Are All Right on Saturday. I didn`t expect too much, but was pleasantly surprised by the movie`s depth in dealing with dodgy issues, such as lesbianism, the nuclear family or lack of it, as well as the simple issue of preparing a child for college life. One thing that I immediately noticed was just how good the soundtrack was. Lots of instrumental guitar work against footage of an organic farmer, Mark Ruffalo, filling a basket of fresh fruit and self-grown vegetables.

One scene in the movie has Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo making a connection on their mutual love of Joni Mitchell album Blue. All I Want is included on the soundtrack. Galatea`s Guitar by Gabor Szabo is, I believe, the track I was thinking of that provides the wonderful ambience of a California organic farm, where many of the scenes are shot.

You will need to see The Kids Are All Right, there is so much going right in here. Lisa Cholodenko directed it and wrote the screenplay, which really works in every sense. And please be sure to check out the kids in the movie, Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson, they really make it happen! Search your storage facilities, too, for your old Joni Mitchell album Blue, a classic worth revisiting.

    organic farms will be the trend in the years to come because everyone will hate toxic foods on their table
