Excellent writing, editing to die for, and a cast that was perfect. Mavis, who has been drinking at the party, collides with Beth, who accidentally spills punch on Mavis's dress. After sampling dozens of crappy streaming Prime Videos I found one that was exceptional. Jason and I did not spend a lot of time talking about what her issues were, and I loved that. The following day, Mavis meets Buddy at the sports bar, where they run into Matt, the bar's bookkeeper. Learn more about Amazon Prime. Mavis talks about needing to change herself, but Sandra says Mavis is better than the rest of Mercury and should not change.
Charlize and Patton, your scenes together were so relaxed and so honest and real.
Charlize Theron, Patton Oswalt, and Screenwriter Diablo Cody YOUNG ADULT Interview
See all reviews. Love it, but only because of Charlize Theron and Patton Oswald. Young Adult began a limited release on December 9,before expanding to a wide release on December 16, Following Charlize Theron and Patrick Wilson's casting, Patton Oswalt was signed after doing a table read-through of the script at Reitman's house. On their way out, Buddy invites Mavis to a performance of Beth's "mom rock band". It received generally positive reviews from critics, and Theron earned a Golden Globe nomination for her performance. That was probably my favorite song when I was nineteen or twenty and I was college radio DJ, and I would just play it constantly.
