A new comedy from Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air) and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno).

Marlo (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron), a mother of three including a newborn, is gifted a night nanny by her brother (Mark Duplass). Hesitant to the extravagance at first, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny named Tully (Mackenzie Davis).

"Theron does minor miracles in the lead, her eyes registering Marlo's pride, insecurity, desperation, and rage, all under the smiling surface of the capable mom next to you at the supermarket." — Ty Burr, Boston Globe


"Mr. Reitman has recaptured the delicate directorial touch he misplaced after Young Adult, while Ms. Cody's multi-edged sword of a script sends its characters down the damnedest surprising paths." — Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
