A true story of survival, as a young couple's chance encounter leads them first to love, and then on the adventure of a lifetime as they face one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history.
Two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. Together, they hatch a plan to solve both of their problems-no matter what the cost.
A woman struggling with insecurity wakes from a fall believing she is the most beautiful and capable woman on the planet. Her new confidence empowers her to live fearlessly, but what happens when she realizes her appearance never changed?
The film is about Marlo, a mother of three, including a newborn. Marlo's brother gives her a night nanny as a gift. Hesitant with the extravagance at first, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny named Tully.
When Marlo is in the hospital bed, she tells Drew she loves him too and the white gauze that is being used to make her lip appear to be swollen can be seen. See more »

If I told you what this drama mimics, it would ruin the whole movie. And after just seeing it, the twist almost did.
So, yeah, being as vague as possible there so not to ruin it for anyone else. Suffice to say, I really liked 90% of Tully.
Sarcastic, depressed and worn-out mother of two with another on the way, debates on accepting a gift of a Night-Nanny. After several impatient moments with her middle child with obvious, but never spoken, autism, she agrees to accept the help. What follows is a series of nights where the new nanny brings sparks back into the mom's life and things are going great again.
The movie is a nice piece of reality and Charlize can really do no wrong. I absolutely believe she'll become a legend and go down in history books about movies as one of the greats. Is this movie great?
Not really, but it's pretty engaging despite it being so realistic. The cast is great, it was well filmed, acted and the dialogue felt both real and funny at times. One could argue this wasn't just lifted from someone's life.
Ahhh, but here's the age-old question: Is this movie worth spending a ton of money at the movies or just renting/watching on Netflix? The latter is true. It's definitely not a Lifetime® Television for Woman® movie as it even jokes about in the actual film. But, it's just a "at-home, wow, that was good" movie.
Just forget the twist! That was foreseen, dumb and unnecessary. It also reminded me of one of my favorite French Horror Movies that gave me high tension and had the same moronic twist.
Final thoughts: And movie, thanks for reminding me, once again, why I don't ever want kids. I don't have 1% of the patience needed. Whew! It's just exhausting seeing this movie and makes me glad about my decision.
