Golden Globe Nominee – Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy (Charlize Theron)
Director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody’s latest collaboration, their third, stars Charlize Theron as Marlo, a mother suffering some serious postpartum blues having just had her third child.
Here’s a new comedy about just how tough motherhood and parenting can be from Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman (UP IN THE AIR) and Academy Award winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (JUNO). Marlo (Theron), a mother of three including a newborn, isn’t sure she should accept her well-to-do brother’s (Mark Duplass) extravagant gift of a night nanny. Once she agrees, her life changes dramatically after TULLY (Mackenzie Davis) joins the household. She seems strange, but soon the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny and the aching mother form a unique bond. Theron, who won an Oscar for her performance as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in MONSTER, gained 50 pounds to play a new mom.
