Let’s face it, no one is exactly young in Paramount Pictures’ Young Adult — one of them just acts like a snobby prom queen. That one in particular is Mavis Gary, a woman who returns to her small hometown (where she isn’t exactly remembered fondly) to reclaim her high school sweetheart. He, unfortunately, is married with children, but hey, why should that stop her from trying. There are a enough funny clips from the embedded trailer that says the re-pairing of Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody (they worked “Juno“) may, and I use the word ‘may’ very liberally, be something special.
Young Adult stars Charlize Theron, Patrick Wilson, Patton Oswalt, J.K. Simmons, Elizabeth Reaser and Collette Wolfe.
Young Adult romanticizes US theaters on December 16, 2011 and UK theaters on February 3, 2012.
