YA is Hot: “Young Adult” Coming to a Theater Near You

By Edward Nawotka

The film Young Adult is due in theaters this December, just in time for the holidays. Directed by Jason Reitman and from a screenplay by Diablo Cody — the same duo that made Juno — and  film stars Charlize Theron, playing Mavis Gary, “a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson).  When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn’t quite gotten over high school, either.”

What do you think about the cover? It’s the Nancy Drew cover you wished for, but never saw…
