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.
I can't wait for this one! But I would just like to say that not all Young Adult writers are stuck in the past. Really. Some of us are kind of stable adults. I'm not saying that I'm one of those or anything, but they do exist.
Still. This movie looks funny. I love hot mess characters.
