Many films have been shown at film festivals, converted to the big screen, and blow viewers out of the water. First premiering at Sundance Film Festival, the film, Tully, takes the gritty reality of parenthood and shoves it into the viewers faces. It is a film that will force viewers with children and without to truly examine parenthood.
"Hello, I'm Tully. I'm here to take care of you."
Diablo Cody, writer of Tully, also blessed the public with Juno (2007), and Young Adult. Charlize Theron starred in Young Adult (2011) as a lead character. Theron set the bar high in her previous film. Now she embodies the spirit of a no nonsense, in your face mother.
From what was available in the trailer, Tully is reminiscent of Juno, except the pregnant one is full adult and experienced. Theron, as Marlo, mother of three, is shown, consistently exhausted and a emotional wreck. She decides she needs help and gets a night nanny known as Tully. Marlo's husband is apparently clueless, but Tully is a Godsend. Tully premieres in theaters, Thursday May 3rd.
