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.
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.
The film was subject to some controversy surrounding its depiction of postnatal (or postpartum) depression and other mental illness. Those that take issue with the portrayal of these subjects do so because the conditions are never specifically named and because they feel that there is not enough treatment shown on-screen. Those that champion the film feel that it is more accurate for not naming the condition, since postnatal (or postpartum) depression is severely under-diagnosed, and that the film actually does a service by causing debate about these under-discussed topics.

She could have it in the ofuro. We just got this Japanese soaking tub. Craig's boss gave it to us.
Wow. My boss once gave me the flu.

A heartwarming movie about a struggling mother of two, who is also pregnant with her third child. The boy is "quirky" and needs special attention which doesn't make matter easier. When the third baby is born it gets even harder for her. Luckily much needed help arrives in the form of Tully, seemingly a young hip version of Mary Poppins, who helps her with the kids and also to find herself again. The movie is funny, weird and moving. Charlize Theron and Mackenzie Davies are both good in it. Glad I saw it and would definitely recommend!
