Marlo (Charlize Theron), a mother of three, including a newborn, is gifted a night nanny by her wealthy brother (Mark Duplass). While at first hesitant to accept the extravagance, she comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny Tully (Mackenzie Davis). Theron gives an unflinchingly honest performance as a woman combating the exhaustion and desperation of an overwhelmed mother, with little help from her somewhat inattentive husband Drew (Ron Livingston). To the rescue comes Tully, a 26-year-old witty and sexy dream come true who’s bound to change their lives in more ways than one. The third collaboration between director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody, TULLY is a funny, moving, and insightful look at motherhood that features captivating performances by its two female leads.
