    Jason Reitman, Diablo Cody and Charlize Theron team up again for Tully, the last part of a "growing up" trilogy along with Juno and Young Adult(?), one of the most piercing and truthful portrayals of modern motherhood I've ever seen in cinema. The grind. The fatigue. The boredom. The isolation. Things we don't really think about or even talk about, maybe (going by conversations with friends who are young mothers), and Theron's character certainly has a lot on her plate - a son who may be on the spectrum, a daughter just coming into her own, post-partem depression regarding the new baby, and a husband who may not be as helpful as he needs to be. Throw in a mid-life crisis while you're at it. I especially love how she has the Cody smartass humor, but it's not cute anymore; it cuts her off from others. And then there's Tully (Mackenzie Davis), a night nanny whose free spirit acts as a healing influence on Theron and her family. For a good while there, I thought the film was going to eschew formula entirely, so I was a little sore at the third act reveal, something perhaps ruined by having seen so many other films. And yet, there's a twist on the formula that earns it. At the very least, there are two exciting uses of montage that I wouldn't part with. 3 years 4 months ago
