TULLY

Janet's TAKE: #TULLY gives a perceptive but uneven look at the demands of motherhood and today's parenting. Grade/B-
While billed as a comedy by the studio, TULLY is
more of a drama with comedic moments. A superb performance by Charlize Theron (who gained 50 lbs. for the role) carries the bulk of the film. The twist ending unfolds in an awkward manner.

Directed by Jason Reitman (“Juno,” “Up in the Air,” “Young Adult”)

Writer: Diablo Cody (“Juno,” “Young Adult”)

Starring: Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis, Mark Duplass, and Ron Livingston

Synopsis:
A new comedy from Academy Award®-nominated director Jason Reitman (“Up in the Air”) and Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (“Juno”). Marlo (Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron), a mother of three including a newborn, is gifted a night nanny by her brother (Mark Duplass). Hesitant to the extravagance at first, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny named Tully (Mackenzie Davis). -Focus Features
