"Charlize Theron is hilarious," (Time Out) in the new comedy from Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman (2007, Best Director, Juno) and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (2007, Best Original Screenplay, Juno). Tully tells the story of Marlo (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, 2003, Best Actress, Monster), a mother of three who is gifted a night nanny by her brother (Mark Duplass). Hesitant to the extravagance at first, she forms a unique bond with the thoughtful, unpredictable, young nanny, Tully (Mackenzie Davis).
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Tully delves into the modern parenthood experience with an admirably deft blend of humor and raw honesty, brought to life by an outstanding performance by Charlize Theron.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Tully is a dark comedy starring Charlize Theron about the "supermom" illusion that casts modern mothers up against impossible standards. Expect frequent strong language ("f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "retarded," etc.), nonsexual nudity (breastfeeding), one non-graphic sex scene that involves role-playing a man's fantasy, more graphic glimpses of people having sex on TV, and frank discussions between Marlo and Tully about their sexual histories. Adults drink (in one scene to excess), and a woman drives while under the influence and ends up in a car accident. The movie offers plenty of messages and issues to discuss with older teens about feminism, motherhood, work-life balance, and more; there are also clear themes of compassion and empathy. Due to the subject matter, it could be difficult viewing for women who've suffered from any form of postpartum depression. The film marks director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody's third collaboration, after Juno and Young Adult.
