Film Synopsis:

Academy Award® 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.

"Young Adult" reunites Jason Reitman, Academy Award® nominated director of "Juno," and Academy Award® winning screenwriter, Diablo Cody.
