The first of our Florida Film Festival movies to see a wide release, Tully hits theaters TODAY! Spoiler alert: We totes loved it, of course. I mean what’s not to like? It’s got Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis, Mark Duplass, Ron Livingston, just generally a bunch of people we really like. Plus it’s got subtle mermaid vibes and you know Wil can’t resist that. Tully was even directed by Jason Reitman, of Up In the Air and Young Adult fame, and was written by Diablo Cody, who we’ll talk more about in a sec.
We paired this movie with Jennifer’s Body specifically so we could talk about Diablo herself. She’s been such a strange but prolific force in the industry for a long time and you can see where she’s grown as a writer as you follow her work from Juno, to Jennifer’s Body, and now to Tully. It’s really interesting. She has almost a Tarantino-esque quality to her writing, but it’s less pretentious.
We dig nice and deep into these movies today so get your thinking caps on and come enjoy this episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
