The Kids Are All Right … aren’t they?

The World

Today, a new movie called “The Kids are All Right” hits theaters, and for A.O. Scott, film critic from The New York Times, it inspired him to ask: are the kids REALLY all right?

In a new article called “They Grow Up So Quickly, Don’t They?” he looks at this summer’s new releases that speak to the state of childhood and adolescence and family today.

He walks us through some of the movies he covers in his article — from Cyrus to Twilight: Eclipse.

And Rafer Guzman, Takeaway contributor and film critic for Newsday, shares some of the new films that he thinks shed light on modern adolescence and family life — from Toy Story 3 to Splice.
