Tully (15)

Comedy, Drama

Comedy drama in which an exhausted mother's life is reinvigorated by the arrival of a young woman employed to help with childcare.

The critical consensus

Sharply observed but tenderly realised, Tully brings back the Reitman we knew and loved, represents Cody’s finest work since Juno, and reminds us why Theron deserved that 2004 Oscar.

****(*)Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 30/04/2018

A stunning turn from Charlize Theron as an exhausted mother whose perfect nanny hides a dangerous secret...

****(*)Kate Stables, Total Film, 30/04/2018

Funny and achingly honest exploration of motherhood, starring an astonishing Charlize Theron.

****(*)Nikki Baughan, The List, 30/04/2018

Two magnetic leads make up for a patronising premise.

***(*)(*)Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 01/05/2018

his is both a witty and a very poignant film about a subject – the stresses and joys of modern motherhood – that Hollywood has rarely gone so near before.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 02/05/2018

Diablo Cody’s story of a mother and her night nanny is sharply written with some fine edge-of-the-seat moments but is let down by an exasperating ending.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 02/05/2018

Jason Reitman and Charlize Theron are bang on form in this bleakly funny tale about a mum and her new night nanny.

****(*)Wendy Ide, The Observer, 05/05/2018
