TULLY and IFFBoston Roundup on Episode #199

Charlize Theron stares off into the distance at a wedding in the film TULLY.

Charlize Theron plays a mom struggling to maintain her sense of self in Jason Reitman’s TULLY.

This week, Evan runs us through his experiences with the best of IFFBoston (4:18) — EIGHTH GRADE, WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?, many great docs.┬áBut it’s the not-so-best — THE THIRD MURDER — that intrigues Kris with its strange premise and stranger name. Kris then gushes about his experience hosting the Q&A for the new Agnostic Front documentary THE GODFATHERS OF HARDCORE (22:57). Then Dave and Kris try and fail to run out of nice things to say about TULLY (29:38) which is a damn good movie. This Diablo Cody-Jason Reitman team-up starring Charlize Theron and Mackenzie Davis is making news for its controversial depiction of mental health, but as a mature yet funny statement about reconciling your past self with your present reality, especially after having children.
