Wondering why times are missing?

Young Adult

Director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody try to recapture some of the magic from 2007's Juno. Less snarky and much darker, Young Adult spins the tale of popular-high-school-cheerleader-turned-successful-teen-lit-author Mavis Gary (the fearless Charlize Theron). Struggling with writer's block, alcoholism and a laundry list of character flaws, Mavis retreats back to her podunk hometown in rural Minnesota to try and win back her hunky high school boyfriend. The results are emotional, thoughtful and scathingly funny. 94 minutes R.
