Director: Jason Reitman • Starring: Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis, Mark Duplass.
If two demanding kids and a switched-off husband have left Marlo (Theron – excellent) tired, then the arrival of number three pushes her into utter exhaustion. She’s resentful of her smug, rich brother’s offer to pay for a “night nanny”, but when Tully (Davis) does become part of Marlo’s life, the effect is transformative. Writer Diablo Cody (Juno) is a mother of two, and her keen eye and ear for family dynamics and school politics creates a funny, “sharply observed but tenderly realised” (Empire) character drama.
Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department. During this month we are showing JAB (12A) (2’31”), directed by Theo Batterham. This was Theo’s first film, and his aim was to portray a sense of tension.
With one showing at 7.30pm ONLY.
