Glamour (South Africa) - - Guide / Chill Out -

Char­l­ize Theron joins forces with her Young Adult cre­ators (screen­writer Di­ablo Cody and di­rec­tor Ja­son Reit­man) in yet an­other won­der­ful tale. Marlo, a fraz­zled and ex­hausted mother of three, with a near-ab­sent hus­band, is close to a ner­vous break­down – un­til her brother, Craig (Mark Du­plass), saves her with an un­usual gift: Tully (Macken­zie Davis) is a mod­ern-day Mary Pop­pins, a one-woman mar­vel who pro­vides clean­ing, bak­ing and wis­dom. Won­der­fully scripted and acted, Tully will res­onate across the board, but es­pe­cially if you strug­gle to main­tain the many roles ex­pected of con­tem­po­rary women. ✪✪✪✪
