Examing something rarely seen on-screen

Tully tells the story of Marlo (Charlize Theron), a New York suburbanite pregnant with her third child. Her husband, Drew (Ron Livingston) is loving, but somewhat neglectful, showing more interest in playing video games than helping Tully maintain the house and family. Clueless about the pressures of motherhood, he fails to notice when Marlo begins to show signs of post-natal depression. However, shortly after the baby's birth, Marlo's wealthy brother, Craig (Mark Duplass) hires a night nanny named Tully (Mackenzie Davis) to help take some of the pressure off Marlo. Reluctant to embrace the idea at first, Marlo soon forms a tight bond with Tully, who introduces Marlo to a lifestyle she had never imagined. Tully is one of those films that the less you know about it before seeing it, the better. Featuring committed performances from Theron and Davis, the film is written by Diablo Cody and directed by Jason Reitman, a partnership which also produced Young Adult (2011), in which Theron also starred. There's a definite thematic uniformity between the two films, as if they exist in an almost sliding doors-like relationship to one another. My only real issue with Tully is that the supporting characters are very thinly drawn - Drew, the well-meaning but ineffectual husband, is especially void of substance. Although, to be fair, the nature of the story, to a certain extent, necessitates this. In any case, this is an excellent study of an issue very rarely put on-screen - imperfect motherhood. A word of warning though; neither the poster, nor the trailer do the film any favours whatsoever. It's funny in places, but this is not a comedy.

Tully is one of those films that the less you know about it before seeing it, the better. Featuring committed performances from Charlize Theron as stressed mother Marlo, and Mackenzie Davis as night-nanny Tully, who arrives just as Marlo is about to go off the deep-end after child number three, the film is directed by Jason Reitman and written by Diablo Cody, a partnership which also produced Young Adult (2011) (also starring Theron). There's a definite thematic uniformity between the two films, as if they exist in an almost sliding doors-like relationship to one another.

Can anybody say "Fight Club" ?

I'm not saying I didn't thoroughly enjoy this movie, but it's been done. This was almost to a T the same idea as Fight Club. And how the principal of a school can call a clearly autistic child "quirky" is beyond me. Great performances. Not so great plot.
