Following an advance screening of Sundance hit Tully, Academy Award–nominated writer-director Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air) joins us for an onstage discussion about his highly anticipated reunion with Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult) and lead actress Charlize Theron (Young Adult). Theron plays Marlo, a mother of three who is gifted a night nanny by her brother (Mark Duplass). Initially hesitant to the extravagance, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny named Tully (Mackenzie Davis).
