Drama: After just having had her third child, a forty-something woman finds her sanity saved and starts to return to normalcy after she hires a night nanny who helps her just as much as she does her baby.
Marlo (CHARLIZE THERON) is a forty-something woman who's raising two kids -- Sarah (LIA FRANKLAND) and Jonah (ASHER MILES FALLICA) -- with her husband, Drew (RON LIVINGSTON), with another child due any day now. While Sarah is a good kid, Jonah is a handful, and when the new baby arrives, Marlo soon finds herself at her wits' end.

Learning that her rich brother, Craig (MARK DUPLASS), and his wife, Elyse (ELAINE TAN), used a night nanny to help them get through the tough parenting times, Marlo eventually concedes she needs help and allows her brother to give her the gift of Tully (MACKENZIE DAVIS).

She's a 26-year-old single woman who instantly connects with both Marlo and her infant, and quickly allows the mom to start to regain her sanity, self-confidence and free spirit she once had when she was Tully's age. As their bond grows tighter and Marlo enjoys life again, she must contend with news that threatens to derail her newfound happiness and free time.

Younger kids probably won't, but it's possible some older teens might be interested, especially if they're fans of anyone in the cast.
For language and some sexuality/nudity.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
