About the film
Tully is the third collaboration between director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody including the charming coming of age film, Juno and the knockout Young Adult.
Starring Charlize Theron as Marlo, a 30 something women who is about to give birth to her third child. Living somewhere in suburban New York with her husband Drew (Ron Livingston), Marlo battles the three F’s; fatigue, frustration and WTF has happened to my life.
In between the messy house, the tantrum-throwing “quirky” child, the careless husband and frozen pizzas, arrives the gift of a modern-day Mary Poppins “night nanny” Tully (perfectly cast Mackenzie Davis).
A heartwarming relationship grows quickly between the two women with Diablo providing great one-liners and infectious wit.
A narrative sleight-of-hand in the third act will have you talking about this film on the car ride home.
It’ll be a great chat.
