Jason Reitman, director of Up In The Air and Juno reunites with Diablo Cody, Oscar-winning writer of Juno, for Young Adult, a lighthearted romantic comedy that centers around a thirty-something fiction writer who’s returning to her Midwestern home turf to hunt down “the one who got away,” only to find that he’s now married and is a father. The film is scheduled to be released on December 16, 2011, but for now you can watch these new clips. Enjoy!
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.
