Young Adult by Jason Reitman, 2011 (R)

with Charlize Theron (The Italian Job, Prometheus), Patrick Wilson (Morning Glory), Patton Oswalt, Elizabeth Reaser (Twilight), J.K. Simmons (Contraband, Thank you For Smoking, Up in The Air), Emily Meade, Collette Wolfe, Brady Smith, Louisa Krause, Jenny Dare Paulin

Taken aback when she receives a letter from an old boyfriend announcing that he's just had a baby with his wife, divorced fiction writer Mavis Gary decides to return to her small hometown and reconnect with her former lover.

Humm... Don't know if I would have watched it spontaneously. It is really dark, and crazy. Therefor, I guess we can say the performance of Charlize Theron is perfect. The director is the one that did "Thank you for smoking" and "Up in the air", so he has some credentials. Maybe there is something about america that when people go crazy, they really go crazy, to the extreme, and at that point I usually disconnect. It is too much, and not enough dramatic, just crazy. Anyway, it is not a bad movie, it's just not my taste. Lately, between "Rachel Getting Married" and "Bridesmaids", I believe I had enough. You have these women putting themselves on the edge, but almost to the point where there are no longer emotions involved. Crazy!
