Young Adult (2011)

Directed by: Jason Reitman
Country: USA

Plot: Soon after her divorce, a fiction writer returns to her home in small-town Minnesota, looking to rekindle a romance with her ex-boyfriend, who is now happily married and has a newborn daughter.
Quick comment: Reitman has accustomed us with the excellence of his scripts (“thank you for smoking”, “juno”, “up in the air”) and “young adult” is no different. A very smart movie that features loneliness, immaturity and frustration (all quite common these days!) disguised with light touches of dark humor. Charlize Theron has a terrific performance as a disturbingly depressive woman.
