My review of Tully, for The Tulsa Voice. It’s the new film from the Juno writer/director team of, respectively, Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman (Cody won an Oscar for that screenplay).

Unlike that inspired story with a singular voice about a teen pregnancy, Tully is a contrived look at a mid-40s pregnancy for a woman (Charlize Theron) going through her own midlife crisis, one that real-life moms will find to be either “relatably cathartic or a buzz-killing trigger”, especially as it starts to push provocative buttons and cross boundaries in shocking ways.
