It's unavoidable to compare. We're at the beginning of the world our grandchildren are going to take for granted. But now, we compare and realize that family is by choice or design a place, a state of mind, in which love does or must flourish. Beautifully told with a sensational performance by Annette Bening. Without preaching or candy coating the story we realize that the future has a chance. Two women, one sperm donor and two children. Why not? We see the results on the children's faces. Mia Wasikowska is the daughter. Smart, compassionate, mature beyond her years. Josh Hutcherson is the son and, although he is the least developed character, I loved him, with his lopsided smile and his healthy curiosity. Mark Ruffalo, wonderful, showing us, as the sperm donor, another face of a character he has a monopoly in, the lovable loser. He is terrific! Julianne Moore is still an actress I find very hard to surrender to. Her acting is so much upfront that it takes you out of the truth she's trying to convey. However I loved the film and I only hope Hillary Swank is not nominated next year so Annette Bening finally gets what she so richly deserves.

Trivia

The film has four references to wineries that appear prominently in Sideways (2004). During the first family dinner scene, the label of the wine bottle on the table is Frass Canyon; Nic looks at it and asks Jules if there is any more Fiddlehead. Frass Canyon is the contrived name of the winery where Paul Giamatti's character in Sideways (Miles) drinks from the spittoon and then dumps the remaining liquid on his head. Miles and Virginia Madsen's character in Sideways (Maya) rave about the Fiddlehead Sauvignon Blanc that Maya is drinking when the two couples meet for dinner--immediately following the famous Merlot scene. When Paul visits Jules and Nic's home for the first time, he announces that he's brought a bottle of Petite Sirah; the label is from Kalyra, the winery where Sandra Oh's character in Sideways works and meets Jack (Thomas Haden Church). Just before the scene when Nic learns of Jules's affair, Paul excitedly tells Nic that he has a "killer" bottle of Alma Rosa Pinot Noir (and the Alma Rosa label appears on the bottle). Alma Rosa is the winery owned by Richard Sanford. At the time Sideways was filmed, Richard Sanford owned Sanford, the first winery stop for Miles and Jack where Miles waxes poetic about Sanford's Pinot Noir. Alma Rosa's tasting room was the Sanford tasting room that appeared in Sideways, and Chris Burroughs, the wine pourer at Sanford in the film, poured for Alma Rosa as recently as 2014.
