Marlo is a New York suburbanite who’s about to give birth to her third child. Her husband, Ron, is loving and works hard, but remains clueless about the demands that motherhood puts on his wife. When the baby is born, Marlo’s wealthy brother hires a nighttime nanny named Tully to help his sister handle the workload. Hesitant at first, Marlo soon learns to appreciate all that Tully does — forming a special bond with her new, lifesaving friend.
What an underrated gem this movie is, I really don’t understand how it flew under the radar unnoticed!
Tully is a wonderful showcase of motherhood and all the ups and downs that accompany it, this film is a great case study of how mothers deal with their problems.
Theron creates this real, weird character who feels very relatable – and Davis delivered a brilliant performance – both worthy of Oscar nominations which they were both snubbed of.
This is a heartwarming story that goes a long way, and one way or another this film is gonna make an impact on you, that’s for sure.
