Jason Reitman and Charlize Theron on Tully
Jason Reitman’s Tully reunites him with collaborators Charlize Theron and Diablo Cody to dig into what happens during parenthood in the refreshingly raw and bittersweet, hilarious film.
Charlize Theron stars as Marlo, a mother of three children including a newborn, whose brother Craig (Mark Duplass) gifts a night nanny to. Hoping that it will alleviate the stress in her life and strain on her relationship with her husband Drew (Ron Livingston), she’s encouraged to welcome in a young lady who shows up on her doorstep named Tully (Mackenzie Davis) to assist in night parenting duties. Hesitant to accept the help, Marlo eventually gives in and finds herself forming a unique bond with the young woman in a fascinating and relatable way.
