Mothers have it rough.
It’s hard to deny that. For Marlo (Charlize Theron) she has 3 children to deal with, which starts early in the morning attending to the baby (feeding, rocking back to sleep in whatever way possible), trying to have a life, breastfeeding, keeping the other kids entertained at all times, and feeding all of them. When her husband (Mark Duplass) arrives home and is surprised that there’s only a frozen pizza ready we all want to give the look Marlo gives to him.
It’s rough and that’s when Tully (Mackenzie Davis) arrives, we can see Marlo’s not sure what to think of her. She’s a nanny, and seems sweet, but has Marlo failed as a mother because she can’t do it all without help? It’s a question I’m sure many women ask, and it will be a nice look at a real family life in 2018.
Directed by Jason Reitman ‘Tully’ releases April 20, 2018.
