However did Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman get the funding to make this film? It eschews so many of the conventional narrative tricks for character studies like this, namely our main character doesn’t appear to change much by the end. We’re stuck with a dark, sour, alcoholic woman whose personal highlights are behind her, and who has crystallized her power-bitch prom-queen persona into a fright... read more

"Sometimes in order to heal a few people have to get hurt."

The last collaboration between director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody was back in 2007 with the Oscar-winning Juno. Now, after the amazing Up in the Air, Reitman reunites again with Cody, and the result is Young Adult. It's definitely a far-cry from Juno, but Reitman and Cody handle the subject matter amazingl... read more

Starting with 3 critical successes in a row, it seemed that Jason Reitman could do now wrong and was set to become one of the most exciting directors at work nowadays. However, his impressive progression seemed to have slow down with this 4th directing effort which didn’t get much love when it was eventually released. To start with, in his previous movies, the main character was flawed but still... read more

" 7.29 Charlize in a Diablo Cody character. Jason Reitman directs. The story is about a nearly-in-her-forties ghost writer of young adult novels, who believes that she's living the writer's dream, becomes convinced that she must save her ex boyfriend of her teenage years from a doomed, boring, married-with-a wife expecting life. Charlize has been around in so many good movies and roles, and yet, this still feels like a turnaround turn.  "
