If you’ve either had kids yourself or are currently friends with others who have kids, you know that it can be an exhausting enterprise. Of course, there are plenty of joys that come from being a parent, but there’s no denying the toll it can take on one’s life, and how much one’s health and well-being can be sacrificed.

Enter screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman, two creatives who love to take on the relatable and really drive it home for audiences. With their latest collaboration, Tully, they tackle the difficulties of parenthood — namely motherhood — from the perspective of Charlize Theron’s Marlo. In order to help with the load, her brother her gifts her a night nanny, who will likely help teach Marlo a lot more about life than she’s getting paid for.

Below is the official synopsis for Tully:

“A new comedy from Academy Award®-nominated director Jason Reitman (“Up in the Air”) and Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (“Juno”). Marlo (Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron), a mother of three including a newborn, is gifted a night nanny by her brother (Mark Duplass). Hesitant to the extravagance at first, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny named Tully (Mackenzie Davis).”

Tully heads to theaters on April 20, 2018.
