Interview with Tully stars Ron Livingston and Mark Duplass
Jason Reitman’s Tully assembles an ensemble roster of talent to explore what happens during parenthood in the dramatic and blisteringly comedic film. Charlize Theron plays 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 named Tully (Mackenzie Davis) to assist in night parenting duties like feeding and putting the baby to sleep so mom could get some rest at night. 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.
