Charlize Theron delivered a standout performance in Jason Reitman’s 2011 feature Young Adult, and now she reteams with the director in the drama Tully. Diablo Cody, who penned Young Adult and the Reitman flick Juno, is Tully’s screenwriter.
The story centers on Marlo (Theron), a mother whose life takes on a new direction after her brother (Mark Duplass) hires a night nanny named Tully (Mackenzie Davis) to give her a little breathing room. Theron should be in fine form once again with the flick, and Davis may have actually landed her breakout role (at least in cinema, as she was excellent in Halt and Catch Fire).
Check out the teaser trailer below for Tully and tell us what you think!
Theron can also be seen in Gringo, a dark comedy that opens March 9. Tully opens nationwide April 20.
