Marlo (Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron), a mother of three including a newborn, is gifted a night nanny by her brother (Mark Duplass). Hesitant to the extravagance at first, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny named Tully (Mackenzie Davis).

Cast: Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis, Mark Duplass, Ron Livingston
Director: Jason Reitman (“Juno,” “Up in the Air,” “Young Adult”)
Writer: Diablo Cody (“Juno,” “Young Adult”)

In cinemas 20th April.

That looks pretty good. Raising kids does take its toll. And the film looks insightful.

This looks good to me. Jason Reitman is one of my favorite directors.

And they put it up against Infinity War. I think Young Adult is a masterpiece and hear that it makes a great companion to that film, so I will see it on BD.

I doubt that people who are interested in yet another comic book movie would be wanting to see something like TULLY.

I'll be checking this out in theaters.

I don't know. I was looking forward to Infinity War (saw it last night) and can't wait to see this as well. But please, feel free to tell me more about what movies I may or may not be interested in seeing.

It’s okay rocket1312, us comic fans are just filthy casual cinema fans.

Theron was on Colbert doing publicity for the movie. So damn gorgeous.

I liked the movie. But I’m not sure how I feel about the twist.

I was on the fence about whether or not to see this, so I read the spoilers. I think I'll wait until its streaming. The twist sounds kind of hokey.

Saw it earlier this evening and I feel the same way. I'll definitely be thinking about it over the next few days.

Really enjoyed Charlize Theron's performance.

Went into this completely blind and loved it. Knowing the twist in advance might have made me leary, or lessened the impact, so glad I avoided talk of it. I guess it’s my favorite film of the year so far, not that there have been many contenders.

I saw this yesterday. Going in I knew there was a twist, but I didn't know what it was. I wish I went in blind because I was waiting for it to happen. I enjoyed the movie, though I did have a nitpick with it...

Spoiler:
Sure, Ron Livingston's character was swamped with work and would retreat to his video games at night, but he wasn't portrayed as an uncaring or totally uninvolved father either. I find it hard to believe he wouldn't at least try to meet this stranger who was going to be responsible for his newborn daughter while he and his wife slept.

But if he did there wouldn't be a twist, so... It just kinda made me not buy it at the end.


BTW I was looking forward to Avengers AND this. Pretty shocking, I know.

Tully...i just saw this and really liked it. avoided too much for fear of spoilers. i faintly heard "twist", but didn't look into it and really forgot until i figured it out, well, really not figured it out, wasn't until Ron Livingston said her maiden name to the nurse after the accident, then it all clicked. but, i think it worked and i really liked it. and i think it showed real life post-partem depression and motherhood. another great one from Theron. Jason Reitman continues to impress me with his body of work. really like all his stuff and didn't even know he did Thank You For Smoking, which i loved. glad Diablo kept herself in check for this one and seemed to grow up in style and writing. really nicely done all the way around.

Good flick, really enjoyable and Theron really is one hell of an actress.

They really liked using Makenzie Davis as a sexual surrogate over the last year or so.

If you haven’t seen Young Adult, do it. I love that movie.

Did Theron wear a fat suit during that jogging scene?

At first I thought maybe there was a lesbian romance between Davis and Theron brewing in the movie.

I watched this the other night and it was kinda meh.

I had no idea the movie had a twist before watching it, but I saw the twist coming pretty early on when I realized that the husband still never met the nanny. It didn't make sense since the husband was still awake at that time, yet didn't express any interest in meeting her. You'd want to meet someone who was taking care of your kid. They went out of their way to avoid their meeting - so something was up.
When he finally meets her during the sex scene, I figured it probably wasn't real as the scenario came up too quickly and didn't seem plausible.
