Aro Recommended Young Adult


USA 2011, 90 minutes
Dir. Jason Reitman
Rating: [M] Offensive language and sexual references.
Genres: Comedy


Aroview: Charlize Theron plays a washed-up writer of young adult fiction pursuing the affection of a former sweetheart in this discomforting comedy from JUNO scribe Diablo Cody.

Theron is great in a willfully regressive role that plays to her strengths as an “uber bitch”, and Cody’s script is refreshingly stripped back from the all-knowing humour and pop-cultural references of her previous hit screenplay. If not quite delivering on the promise of a comedy of humiliation, the desperation and self-defeating behaviour ring true.
