When Mia Wasikowska first burst onto the scene in HBO’s transfixing series In Treatment, critics were quick to praise her acting chops and label her the next big thing. A bit part in Edward Zwick’s Holocaust drama Defiance, a role opposite Hilary Swank in Mira Nair’s Amelia and the title spot in Tim Burton’s blockbuster Alice in Wonderland, culminated in a coveted spot on the cover of Vanity Fair’s Hollywood issue. The transition from ingénue to star was complete. Now, Wasikowska’s delivering on the hype. In Lisa Chonlodenko’s latest indie flick, The Kids Are All Right, she takes on the part of Joni, an introverted 18-year-old girl who, at the request of her younger brother (Josh Hutcherson), contacts “bio-dad,” the motorcycle-toting sperm donor (Mark Ruffalo) her lesbian mothers (Julianne Moore and Annette Benning) selected 19 years prior. The drama–and humor –unfolds as Joni and her family get to know donor-dad. We sat down with the rising star to talk about her role in Kids, the genius of Gus Van Sant, and the brutality of ballet.

What attracted you to this film?
When I read the script, I felt it was very unique and unlike any story I had read before. I was also attracted to the creative team behind it: Lisa, Annette, Julie, Mark and Josh. That was what really excited me.

Wasikowska and Hutcherson do a good job of playing real-seeming teens, ones who love but are exasperated and occasionally embarrassed by their parents – not because they’re gay but because they’re as square as any other parents. – huffingtonpost.com

Wasikowska, in particular, is exceptional — disappointment lingering in her eyes, face quivering on the edge of tears as one after another of her parents lets her down, as parents inevitably do. While she may be best known for her delightful Alice in Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” it is the mix of vulnerability and steel she brings to HBO’s “In Treatment,” as one of Gabriel Byrne’s troubled clients, that most informs Joni. – latimes.com

One of the films that got rave reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was director Lisa Cholodenko’s (High Art, Laurel Canyon) The Kids Are All Right. The film is about two teenage children Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) and Josh Hutcherson (Journey to the Center of the Earth, Red Dawn) that decide to track down their donor father (Mark Ruffalo) as they were both conceived artificially by their two mothers (Annette Bening and Julianne Moore). Once they locate him, their household will never be the same. Like I said yesterday when I posted my interview with director Lisa Cholodenko, I loved this movie and I think it’s going to be remembered at the end of the year during Award season.

Anyway, I recently got to speak with Mia Wasikowska and we talked about how she got involved in the project, what it was like to work with such a great cast, what the past year has been like for her, and I also got updates on Gus Van Sant’s Restless, Jane Eyre, and has she heard anything about a sequel to Alice in Wonderland. Hit the video to see what she had to say.
