Fantastic
5 May 2018 | by plasticanimalzSee all my reviews

Charlize was great, as always, and Mackenzie Davis was magical. It's a real-world take on Mary Poppins. Was really looking forward to this film and was not disappointed. Diablo Cody took a darker turn from Juno with Young Adult, which was darkly hilarious, and she again took a stark subject and sprinkled it with hope and a bit of whimsy. The film is not going to make you want to run out and become a mother but it also paints a more real look on how motherhood can be hard, stressful, seemingly impossible at times, but ultimately rewarding. It's not your glossy, magical look on motherhood, falsely advertised in most film and TV. I can't say much more on it without giving away the plot which needs to be seen for itself. But the themes they explore in the film are highly relatable for anyone whether they have kids or not. It will leave you thinking.
