Tully (2018)
First screened in May 2018
Director: Jason Reitman. Cast: Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis, Ron Livingston, Asher Miles Fallica, Lia Frankland, Mark Duplass, Elaine Tan, Gameela Wright, Bella Star Choy, Colleen Wheeler, Joshua Pak. Screenplay: Diablo Cody.

Twitter Capsule: A different film than Juno and its older, sadder, trickier twin. Ambitious takes on underexplored ideas, deftly coaxed out.

Second Capsule: Cody, Reitman yield another fresh take on nervous motherhood, ambivalent fatherhood, and cross-generational female allyship.

VOR:   Innovative in story structure, but even more risky to make women's domestic and psychological experiences this central and this complex.
