I attended the screening of Young Adult last night. To put it simply, I wasn’t impressed. While it did have some funny moments, it was mostly awkward & uncomfortable to watch. Maybe that’s because I’m a woman who could semi relate to Charlize Theron’s character on some level, or some part of me is afraid I could end up like her – trust me, no one would want that. The ending was almost too easy, but it made sense with the overall story-line. In the end, I wasn’t shocked with my own reaction of this film because I wasn’t a huge fan of Jason Reitman’s [director] last film, Up In The Air. I feel as though these two films are very similar in the fact that the main character is going through some sort of struggle, & is almost sad to watch their downfall.
Young Adult opens in theaters Friday, December 16th, 2011.
