The first trailer for Jason Reitman‘s Young Adult is here and it looks mean, dark and kind of funny. Charlize Theron stars as a fiction writer who returns to her hometown after a divorce, hoping to reignite some flames with a past boyfriend. Patrick Wilson plays said boyfriend who is happily married with a child and Patton Oswalt gets tossed into the mix for some great supporting comedic relief.
Reitman has an impressive list of films under his belt, previously doing Up in the Air, Thank You for Smoking and Juno, the latter being my least favorite effort due to Diablo Cody, who wrote Young Adults. Her usual oddball writing isn’t noticeable in this trailer, which gives me hope!
The film opens on December 16th, 2011.
