Oscar-winner Charlize Theron’s latest film explores the challenges of motherhood as her character struggles to keep it together raising several children in Oscar-nominated director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air) and Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody’s (Juno) mind-bending drama, Tully.
Marlo (Theron) is a New York suburbanite who’s about to give birth to her third child. Her husband Ron (Ron Livingston) is loving and works hard, but remains clueless about the demands that motherhood puts on his wife. When the baby is born, Marlo’s wealthy brother (Mark Duplass) hires a nighttime nanny named Tully (Mackenzie Davis) to help his sister handle the workload. Hesitant at first, Marlo soon learns to appreciate all that Tully does — forming a special bond with her new, lifesaving friend.
