Mini Review - Tully

Tully (out May 10) marks the third collaboration between director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody (following Juno and Young Adult). It's the story of a tired, overworked, depressed mum (Charlize Theron) who finds her life reinvigorated when her brother helps hire a "night nanny". This is a worthy character study and it’s hard not to feel sympathy towards the mum and her plight. Grade: B+.
