Common Sense Media reviews The Kids are Alright for kids and families.
Calvin (Paul Dano) is a young novelist who achieved phenomal success early in his career but is now struggling with his writing - as well as his romantic life. Finally, he makes a breakthrough and creates a character named Ruby who inspires him. When Calvin finds Ruby (Zoe Kazan), in the flesh, sitting on his couch about a week later, he is completely flabbergasted that his words have turned into a living, breathing person.
A conman finds that he can't trust anybody, not even his girlfriend or his mother, who are in the same line of work. Great performances, especially by Huston, highlight this sometimes shocking story!
