Starring: Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis, Mark Duplass, Ron Livingston
Comedy drama directed by Jason Reitman and written by Diablo Cody. The story centers on Marlo (Charlize Theron), a mother of three including a newborn, who is gifted a night nanny by her brother (Mark Duplass). Hesitant to the extravagance at first, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny named Tully (Mackenzie Davis).
Our Favorite Quote:'Your twenties are great, but then your thirties come around the corner like a garbage truck at 5:00 a.m.' - Marlo (Tully) Click To Tweet
Marlo: Great moms organize class parties and make cupcakes. Things I’m just too tired to do.
Craig: Do you know what a night nanny is? They take of the baby at night so mom and dad can get some sleep.
Marlo: I don’t want a stranger in my house. That’s like a Lifetime movie where the nanny tries to kill the family and the mom survives and she has to walk with a cane at the end.
Craig: Get over yourself.
[referring to the dinner an exhausted Marlo has just placed on the table]
Drew: Hey, frozen pizza. Awesome.
[after Marlo has had to take off her shirt because her son knocked water over it]
Sarah: Mom, what’s wrong with your body?
[Marlo opens the front door]
Tully: Hello. I’m Tully. I’m here to take care of you.
Marlo: I’m just not used to people doing things for me. I hold a baby all day, and then nighttime rolls around and I’m supposed to switch gears. Like, “Hello, I’m all sexy now.”
Tully: You’re empty.
[we see she’s referring to Marlo breastfeeding her baby]
Tully: No, you’re empty on this side.
Tully: I’m here to help you with everything. You can’t fix the parts without treating the hole.
Marlo: Yeah, no one’s treated my hole in a really long time.
Marlo: Your twenties are great, but then your thirties come around the corner like a garbage truck at 5:00 a.m.
Tully: Girls heal
Marlo: No, we don’t. We might look like we’re all better, but if you look close, we’re covered in concealer.
Tully: [to Malo] You’re convinced that you’re this failure, but you actually made your biggest dream come true.
Drew: [to Marlo] If you want to run off or something, I get that, because I want to do that too sometimes, but I’m not gonna.
