Description

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

Academy Award–nominated director Jason Reitman returns to the Sundance Film Festival for the sixth time, having previously debuted four shorts and one feature at the Festival, while Academy Award–winning screenwriter Diablo Cody makes her Sundance Film Festival debut with Tully, a funny, moving, and insightful look at motherhood that features captivating performances by its two female leads.
