While she had seen many depictions of the so-called "control-freak mom" in movies and TV, she wanted to explore "the other side of that coin, which is a mom who is so distracted and underwater that she accidentally bangs the baby's auto seat into the wall or drops her phone on the baby while she's changing her diaper".
In "Juno", it's navigating an unplanned teen pregnancy.
"Tully", opening in theaters this weekend, and "Young Adult" share a common thread beyond their creative architects.
Cody, whose real name is Brook Busey-Maurio, came to notoriety during the blog craze of the early 2000s. "You can't just outsource your life", she says.
Screenwriter Diablo Cody won an Oscar for her debut screenplay for "Juno", directed by Jason Reitman, and firmly established her unique voice - sarcastic, smart and referential, a singular blend of self-deprecation and superiority.
Theron: Well the actress that we wanted wasn't available, but she was a close friend of my agent.
"Juno. Fox Searchlight
Theron delivers a knockout performance as Marlo, who is not only struggling with the demands on her time but the added concern that comes from having a child with a behavioral issue.
It is not until a 21st century Mary Poppins, who takes multitasking to dizzying new heights, materialises in the fractured family home and re-energises the exhausted matriarch with an endless supply of self-help aphorisms, that an emotional dam breaks and the words and tears cascade. No, Jason told me about it. "And to be honest, it probably would have been a better commercial impulse to do something like that because the smaller more intimate stories are being told on cable and streaming right now". The slightest turn of the dial and this would be a horror movie. They get into trouble - and I'm not inclined to say much more.
Q. Mackenzie, how did you join this team? Suggested by Marlo's wealthy-as-bleep brother (Mark Duplass), Tully is a night nanny, showing up just as the sun goes down and helping Marlo sleep through the night.
Marlo kids her at one point that she feels like she's in a movie where the nanny tries to kill everyone, and the mother survives but has to walk with a cane. But things begin to unravel in the third act, which leads to an incredible revelation. Reitman had just made Thank You for Smoking, his adaptation of Christopher Buckley's novel about the evils of tobacco marketing, and his mordantly matter-of-fact tone turned out to be a flawless fit for Cody's equally deadpan style. "I had more injuries on this than I ever had on Mad Max (Fury Road) or on Atomic Blonde". When a man does that it means a lot to me.
"I was supposed to be writing this big-budget, four-quadrant Hollywood movie, and I was failing at it". I was obviously sleep deprived. Still, as frank as Tully can be in its portrayal of how newborn mothers are affected both physically and mentally by giving birth and caring around the clock for an infant, it never devolves into pure cynicism and remains empathetic in its portrait for most of its runtime (more on that later). "It was a therapeutic exercise".
With Tully, they're pretty much back on form. But it will give parents in the audience major PTSD.
