Tully tells the story of a mother with two kids, giving birth to her third. Not dealing with the stress of a new born Marlo (Charlize Theron), takes up her wealthy brothers offer of paying for a night nanny. Hesitant at first, Marlo’s life soon becomes blissfully changed as her bond with night nanny Tully (Mackenzie Davis) blossoms.
The American comedy drama is directed by Jason Reitman and written by Diablo Cody. Tully is the fourth collaboration between the pair with Juno, Jennifer’s Body and Young Adult under their belt. The film stars Charlize Theron, Mark Duplass, Mackenzie Davis and Ron Livingston.
A raw honest look into the stress of parenthood, in which Theron performed marvellously. The film was full of blunt sarcastic humour with the comedic timing pulled off perfectly. A charming heartfelt film with great dialog. Not just a film for the mums, but an easy and entertaining watch for all.
