UTW review of The Kids Are All Right + Restrepo

Go here if you want to get reviews of The Kids Are All Right and Restropo that appeared in a recent Urban Tulsa. Kids... is a family dramedy about what happens when two adopted teenagers are introduced to the man their lesbian moms used for artificial insemination. It throws the family off their tracks of normalcy to say the least. It's good.

Also good is the war documentary Restrepo. It follows a troop during a 15 month deployment in a very dangerous region of Afghanistan as they attempt to set-up and hold an operation post. Told from the viewpoint of a selection of the men, it is a raw, intimate portrait of what being a modern soldier looks like.
