Biography

Screenwriter Stuart Blumberg was no stranger to finding lighthearted and quiet personal moments in relationships that cross both religious and gender boundaries. He first gained recognition for writing the hit comedy "Keeping the Faith" (2000), a love triangle involving an overly analytical rabbi, a naïve yet loveable Roman Catholic priest, and a beautiful, free-spirited executive. Blumberg's career went on a slight tangent with the wildly predictable teen comedy "The Girl Next Door" (2004), about an unlikely romance between a straight-laced high school senior and his porn star neighbor. With only a few writing credits under his belt, Blumberg suddenly became the talk of Hollywood with the film "The Kids Are All Right" (2010), a smart and novel comedy that explored the themes of family, love, and acceptance, and a film that placed Blumberg's writing talents at the forefront of contemporary cinema.
