    Interview | Pop Art: Lisa Cholodenko Aims for the Mainstream with "The Kids Are All Right"

    Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll -- while all three appear to lesser and greater degrees in the work of indie auteur Lisa Cholondenko, what's always constant is a keen insight into the complexity and fragility of our closest relationships.
