The film is about Marlo, a mother of three including a newborn, who is gifted a night nanny by her brother. Hesitant to the extravagance at first, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny named Tully.

Tully Directed by Jason Reitman

What are people saying?

  • Ethan's rating of the film Tully

    This is a phenomenal and brutally honest film. Charlize Theron gives another powerhouse performance and the team of Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody score again with another human dramedy with a little bit of twist. Mackenzie Davis is a real treat in this film as well.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Tully

    Reitman and Cody reteam for this Charlize Theron vehicle that's third act twist almost derails the film before a well written Mark Duplass scene rescues it. The pathos and cinematic depression is a little thick here but the lead turns by Theron and Mackenzie Davis are quite stellar with memorable sequences throughout. Pales next to the Reitman/Cody oeuvre especially 'Young Adult'.

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Tully

    Tully is at once a cautionary tale about the dangers of neglecting one self, and a deeply layered and profoundly touching take on the reality of living with the choices we made. Cody wrote, simply put, a perfect script, unmistakably her best one yet. It’s consistently funny, sharp in all the right places, and surprisingly kind. Still Tully isn’t a ‘happy’ movie. It's simply a film that recognizes the joy in life.

  • Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Tully

    "Tully" is like a Lifetime movie if those films were even a tiny bit realistic and also doubled as feature-length PSAs for vasectomies and tubal litigation. The Jason Reitman/Diablo Cody dream-team reunites once more to give us a fabulous tale of motherhood with grand doses of magical realism. It also recognizes the only way to show the strength of motherhood is to show the strength of womanhood. A low-key gem.

  • Armina Stepan's rating of the film Tully

    Charlize Theron's character beautifully crumbling under the weight of expectations and responsibilities, with a surreal twist of "The Sixth Sense" proportions

  • Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Tully

    This really was satisfying after Reitman's sophmore misstep. A great performance by Charlize so different from ATOMIC BLONDE or MAD MAX perfectly brings to life Diablo cody's humanity-infused script.

  • Renton47's rating of the film Tully

    Perhaps because my expectations are quite low for any insight proffered by Reitman and Cody I'll happily say that at least half of this is strong - the film-making deft with some great montage cuts, the drama natural, quietly sad. But how must you really feel about motherhood to service it with this end, offering a resolution that never makes the sacrifice worthwhile. That I partially came for Davis was rewarded 2.5

  • A.B. II: The Return's rating of the film Tully

    The best scenes in this film are watching the family interact and experience events with each other. If this film had just been that, this could have a poignant (even charming) film about the joys and hardships of parenthood. Funny enough, what kills the film is the Tully aspect; everything about her feels out of place with the rest of the film, from her erratic characterization to her ultimate purpose in the story.
