Young Adult (MA15+)
Soon after her divorce, a fiction writer (Charlize Theron) returns to her home in small-town Minnesota looking to rekindle a romance with her ex-boyfriend (Patrick Wilson), who is now happily married and has a newborn daughter.
They say: Young Adult is a funny and powerful noholds-barred examination of prolonged adolescence.
We say: The director and writer behind Juno – Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody – re-team with fantastic results in this amusing drama that is all about Charlize Theron’s brave performance as a woman you love to hate. Expect accolades. Running time 94 minutes. Cinemas Australia Fair, Coolangatta, Harbour Town, Pacific Fair, Tweed, Robina.
