Young AdultIn "Young Adult," divorced young adult fiction author Mavis Gary (Charlize Theron) returns to her small Minnesota hometown to win back her high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson), now a happily-married father.

She winds up forging an unexpected bond with another former schoolmate (Patton Oswalt) who's had a particularly difficult life.

"Juno" collaborators Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody re-team for the Paramount Pictures production.

Fun fact: The dog Hummer from the film was nominated for a Golden Collar Award, and Quentin Tarantino listed the movie as one of his favorites of 2011.

Theron was nominated for a 212 Golden Globe for best performance by an actress in a motion picture-comedy or musical.
