If Beale Street Could Talk

"Thank you ! Did we all read "Giovanni's Room" when we were teens ... and were slightly baffled and taken ?? Now I'm curious .. about this movie" - Martin

"We don’t deserve something this beautiful in 2018..." - Margaret

"I thought it was a terrific, lovely film but with some flaws. I don't think the voiceovers work well in the film and nor was it necessary since the film was already so infused with Baldwin's voice. " - Raul

"Tully" Teases

Chris here. Has everyone come around to the comedy masterpiece that is Young Adult yet? If not, allow yourself a revisit in the coming months because we have an enticing reunion between its team. Charlize Theron returns for director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody for Tully, a tale of contemporary suburban motherhood. 

This time around Halt and Catch Fire's Mackenzie Davis joins the collaborators as the titular nanny who helps Theron's mother cope with the demands of parenting, and they begin to establish a bond together as well. While Reitman/Cody are more widely known for their Juno collaboration which landed Cody an Oscar, this film looks to skew closer to Young Adult based on the just released teaser. The almost dialogue free 90 seconds is filled with brisk detail and tough honesty (not to mention a few belly laughs) that reminds immediately Young Adult's painfully precise opening sequence. Will this satiric look at new motherhood be equally spot on? Things are already promising for something special when the film opens April 20!

Is this Cody’s Mary Poppins? I’m so there.

High hope for Davis whom I fell in love with in ALWAYS SHINE.

SOLD! How "Young Adult" got passed over in everything that year is beyond me.

Young Adult is by far one of my favorite movies.

"C'mon Jan, tell em!"

Looking forward to this one!

Young Adult is aging *very* well. (Y'all who haven't seen it, go!)

The teaser had me thinking that the titular character wouldn't even be revealed, which is an interesting track to take. With Mary Poppins Returns, 2018 is shaping up to be the year of the magical and/or life-saving nanny.

Jija - Always Shine is *GREAT*. Here's hoping Davis can really breakthrough because she's been solid for years now

I've seen Young Adult about 4 times and it has become one of my favorite movies. What a smart, understated movie with a great perfromance at its center. Really excited for this as well.

The time has come to give Theron her third nomination !!! She was robbed so BAD for Young Adult and now is the perfect chance for the Academy to make up their mistake..... Only if Tully is any good. As hard as i try to forget about Labor Day and Men, Women & Children, it happened and it can happen again ....
