Tully has two different aspects I’d like to talk about, and how I explain them will make it seem like I think this movie will win every Oscar ever, when that is not the case at all. This role is probably as realistic as they come in terms of dealing with postpartum depression. Charlize Theron has had career defining roles before, but this is one of her best. I personally couldn’t relate to the topic of the movie, except Ana kept looking at me and said if I pulled the crap Ron Livingston’s character does, she would kill me. I’m not a parent and don’t know what life is like when you bring a bundle of joy home for the first time. Having multiple kids today is a handful, considering it is more common that some need more attention than others. Unexpected things happen all the time, but woman take motherhood very serious and they are built tough physically and mentally to handle the worse of the worse. Somewhere in between diaper changing and school drop offs, they have their own hopes and dreams. Some get achieved and some don’t. As much as people want to do it all their own, it takes a helping hand to achieve something even greater. Whether that comes with a price is a different story, that I can’t tell you because it would ruin the end of the movie. I appreciated the performances even though I honestly can’t related to the subject material at all. 4/10
