Charlize Theron plays a mother overcome with the pressures of motherhood, in this honest film that tells an unexpected story of mental illness. After giving the gift of life to her youngest daughter Mia, it seems that the life has then been drained from our protagonist. After hiring a ‘night nanny’ named Tully, life seems to improve for everyone in the film.
‘Tully’ isn’t a film that displays the glamourized look on pregnancy that many movies too. It focuses on the truthful reality that motherhood is a stressful, overwhelming part of life. Charlize Theron’s acting is terrific as she completely nails her role in another Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody film.
All in all, Tully is a well written, well-acted movie that is worth the watch. After seeing the surprise ending, it may be worth while watching again with the knowledge of what happens.
