YOUNG ADULT is a darkly hilarious film about a popular teen literature author (Charlize Theron) who is deeply cynical and depressed. Theron's character Mavis returns to her high school town to reclaim the glory of her youth and to make every attempt to steal her high school boyfriend (Patrick Wilson)--who happens to be happily married with a child on the way.

Mavis also reconnects with another person from her adolescent past (Patton Oswalt) who tries to help guide her on her sad journey of love.

The film is raw, uncomfortable but somehow charming, featuring a tremendously fearless performance from the superbly talented Theron and a wonderfully likable turn from Oswalt. The film also reunites Reitman with JUNO screenwriter Diablo Cody at her absolute best. (Meredith Borders)
