Tully tells the story of Marlo (Charlize Theron), a mother of three who is gifted a night nanny by her brother (Mark Duplass). Hesitant to the extravagance at first, she forms a unique bond with the thoughtful, unpredictable young nanny, Tully (Mackenzie Davis).
Am I the only person not swept away by this movie? I found it syrupy at times along with the vocals on the soundtrack. Almost believable to begin with, before it ran away with itself. A cop out ending and for me, the movie was a waste of time. Usual issue with slurred American vocals and there being no subtitles to access.
Cinema Paradiso have this listed as a comedy, it's not, in fact there's nothing funny in the whole film. There's literally no twist, you can work out the entire film / ending after about 10 mins. Absolute load of ****
I thought this was a really smart and thought provoking film (written by Diablo Cody) it focuses on Charlize Theron’s character marlo who is an overstretched, stressed and exhausted mum, the film follows her through the birth of her 3rd child and follows her through the mundane and extraordinary times of coping with a new child, the cast is excellent which always helps, a very humane film and definitely worth a look.
This film is rathe ludicrous, although I think the concept might have worked with a different plot/script/screenplay. The acting is fine (i started to feel sorry for the actors) but it is so unbelievably unbelievable that it was almost a comedy (as it was supposed to be but probably not for that reason). I agree with other reviewers who have said that it started out with promise before degenerating into rubbish.
I do disagree with the previous reviews for this film, it has an interesting premise and Charlize Theron is as watchable as ever. I know some people didn't like the ending but I thought it made sense and brought everything together.
