Deeply touching, sometimes quite sad, and realistic portrayal of motherhood. Do not read any reviews with spoilers if you want the full effect of the movie.

Enjoyed the movie but definitely not what I expected. As a mother I could relate with the main character. It did have some sad moments but so does real life. I would highly recommend it.

I have to confess that I had made a huge mistake before I saw this movie, namely, the awareness of the existence of Tully is actually Marlo's (Charliez Theron's) hallucination or imagination. With that surprise gone, this movie doesn't have much remained to entertain me.  Though I tried to be emphatic with Marlo, I couldn't but feel it's just too painful and torturous to be a mother.  While watching, I kept feeling and asking "why did people, like the protagonist, want to be a mother 3 times" ?!  In fact, Marlo herself had mentioned a few times that things deteriorated after 3 pregnancies. All in all, I don't feel that this movie has any magic or charm to appeal to me.

Tully turns out to be a twofer. There’s the movie you see, which is whipsmart, intimate, affecting and fearlessly funny about the mixed blessings of motherhood. And there’s the movie you replay in your mind to sort out its several mysteries. That one is richer, deeper and strangely beautiful.

I saw Tully twice. After my first screening, I wasn’t sure what to think of the ending. The second time, I was convinced of the film’s brilliance.

The often-very-funny picture entertains while affording its characters their share of no-laughing-matter concerns.
