Three new clips have been released from Up in the Air director Jason Reitman’s new pic Young Adult. Written by Diablo Cody (Juno), the film centers on an alcoholic young adult novelist who ventures back to her hometown in order to pursue her now-married high school boyfriend. Charlize Theron is already turning heads for her nasty performance, and the more I see of the film the more excited I am to see it. Reitman’s a fantastic storyteller and Cody’s script is said to be very, very dark.
Hit the jump to watch the clips. The film also stars Patton Oswalt, Patrick Wilson, and Elizabeth Reaser. Young Adult opens in limited release December 9th and opens nationwide a week later.
Here’s the synopsis for Young Adult:
Academy Award(R) 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.
