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 no 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

“I found this movie to be quite "sad" in the sense that you feel sorry for the main character. However, I didn't feel that it was a movie that touched my soul or even left me with much of a second thought.” read more

My Movie Diary 2016 (235 movies items)

" 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.  "
