DIRECTOR Jason Reitman
CAST Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis, Mark Duplass, Ron Livingston
Charlize Theron reteams with director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody for a razor-sharp comedy-drama about an exhausted mother of three.
In this smart comedy-drama, Marlo (Charlize Theron) is an exhausted mother of three, who hesitantly accepts a gift of a night nanny from her wealthy brother. The young, free-spirited girl, Tully (Mackenzie Davis), immediately takes charge of the new baby, becomes invaluable to the family and forms a close bond with Marlo. So what’s the catch? With a razor-sharp script written by Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult) and captivating performances from its two female leads, this is a funny and subtly radical view of the realities of motherhood.
(2018 USA 96 mins)
Reitman offers a truly remarkable film in which preconceived ideas about motherhood are constantly challenged. Elevated by a beautifully well devised script by Diablo Cody, Tully manages to get under the skin from the get go with its witty dialogue and beautifully well judged lighthearted moments … Theron is truly magnificent in the role of a woman who, with each pregnancy, has struggled to reconcile herself with whom she used to be … A hugely compelling, beautifully acted and expertly crafted piece of filmmaking which deserves to been seen by all. Linda Marric, HeyUGuys
