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).
Jason Reitman was born in Montreal and raised in Los Angeles, where he studied creative writing at the University of Southern California. His films Thank You For Smoking (05), Juno (07), Up in the Air (09), Labor Day (13), and Men, Women & Children (14) screened at the Festival. The Front Runner (18) is his latest feature.
