Colin Firth on Julianne Moore in ‘The Kids Are All Right’

Actors on actors

“Julianne has formidable emotional register, which a less judicious actor would be tempted to flaunt. in ‘The Kids Are All Right,’ the range is clear: laughter, nerves, desperation, maternal love, regret, heartbreak, lust. Like all good actors, she doesn’t act any of it. Instead you see her fight against it. When she says, ‘Marriage is hard,’ you see her struggle for reason and poise; what she plays is her longing for a happy family. And what breaks through is this terrible pain. It’s extremely moving watching her trying to manage it. All the actors in this film are on this ame formidable level. I kept thinking what a joy it must have been for them all to play off each other.”
