In a behind-the-scenes promo for the lesbian moms flick The Kids Are All Right, writer-director Lisa Cholodenko talks about family.

The film, which stars Academy Award nominees Julianne Moore and Annette Bening, arrives on DVD and Blue Ray on Tuesday.

In the clip, Cholodenko says family is important to her, then adds, “And when I was younger I think I took it for granted.”

She says she decided to move back to Los Angeles to start her own family because she wanted “something to tend to.”

“I just felt like, 'What else do you have in a way except for the people that are your tribe?'” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

In The Kids Are All Right, the family dynamics of long-term lesbian couple Nic (played Annette Bening) and Jules (Julianne Moore) is altered in unexpected ways when their teenage children seek out Paul (Mark Ruffalo, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Shutter Island), their biological father, whose anonymously donated sperm impregnated the women.

Cholodenko previously directed the lesbian drama High Art.
