10TH ANNIVERSARY: YOUNG ADULT
Guest Programmed and Introduced by Mary Kobayashi (9/18)
Academy Award winner Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn’t quite gotten over high school, either.
Dir: Jason Reitman / 2011 / US / 94 min
“It’s an empathetic but bravely brittle portrait of an aging queen bee that showcases a nuanced performance from Theron as a woman too used to being admired to admit how lonely and desperate she’s become.” – Alison Willmore, AV Club
“A fearless character study.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
