Charlize Theron, who put on 20kg for the role Marlo, plays a new mother who finds that she is just unable to cope with bringing up her new born baby and seeing after her other two children. When her rich brother (Mark Duplass) suggests that she takes on a nanny Marlo initially refuses but eventually when the pressure becomes overwhelming she gives in.

Marlo then calls a night nanny service and 26 year old Tully (Mackenzie Davis) arrives at her door.

Tully is like a present from heaven to Marlo and the pair soon form a close friendship. However as Marlo’s friendship grows it becomes obvious that there is more to Tully than just being an expert nanny.

Tully is a simple story that’s played out at a leisurely pace, however the one thing that saves it from becoming nothing more than ordinary is Theron who gives, arguably, her best performance since she won the Oscar for best actress for Monster in 2003.
