Tribeca will host the New York premiere of Jason Reitman’s Charlize Theron-starrer Tully, written by Diablo Cody in her latest pairing with Reitman and Theron, with whom she worked on Juno (Reitman) and Young Adult (Reitman and Theron). That screening will be followed by a talk between Reitman and writer-director Tamara Jenkins. Tully, a comedy about a harried mother (Theron) and her free-spirited nanny (Mackenzie Davis), received a surprise Sundance screening, after which The Hollywood Reporter’s John DeFore called it a “funny and piercing take on the self-abnegation of parenting.”
The Tribeca fest will also host the world premiere of Burns’ latest film, Summertime, which is set in the summer of 1983 at Rockaway Beach.
