ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Director Jason Reitman (UP IN THE AIR, THE FRONT RUNNER) crafts a clever, and ultimately powerful, examination of prolonged adolescence with YOUNG ADULT. Soon after her divorce, a fiction writer (Oscar winner Charlize Theron, MONSTER, TULLY) returns to her home in small-town Minnesota, looking to rekindle a romance with her ex-boyfriend, who is now happily married and has a newborn daughter. "What makes the movie marvelous," raves the Wall Street Journal, "is the same combination that the filmmaker and writer brought to "Juno" -- unerringly subtle yet precise direction plus a literate script with dramatic energy and a delicate tone."

SYNOPSIS

Mavis Gary (Charlize Theron) is a successful writer of teen literature who returns to her hometown with a dual mission: to relive her glory days and steal away her now-married high-school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). However, her mission does not go exactly to plan, and she finds her homecoming more problematic than she expected. Instead, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt), who has also found it difficult to move past high school.
