Tully motherhood movie trailer

Hollywood loves depicting mums on the big screen. But they rarely get it right. Sure, Bad Moms was pretty funny, but Tully manages to take the truth about motherhood one step further.

If the trailer is anything to go by, Tully is an honest representation of how hard it is to be a mum. It’s spine-tinglingly accurate. And if may leave you wondering if someone’s been secretly filming your life, collecting all those hidden moments to turn into a movie.

FINALLY, a movie about motherhood that hits the mark

The film stars Charlize Theron as Marlo, an exhausted mum-of-three, her youngest still a newborn. Marlo’s brother pays for a nanny, named Tully (Mackenzie Davis), to come live with Marlo for a few months.

The usually put-together Theron is the epitome of a dishevelled new mum with her makeup-less face, stained nursing bra and stretch-marked tummy. She could be each and every one of us during those first few weeks with a newborn.

From accidentally dropping her phone on her newborn’s head to spilling a bunch of freshly pumped milk, this is motherhood. Uncensored. And on the big screen.

Born and raised in Canada, Jenna now lives in Far North Queensland with her tribe. When the mum-of-three is not writing, you can find her floating in the pool, watching princess movies, frolicking on the beach, bouncing her baby to sleep or nagging her older kids to put on their pants.
