Young Adult

(2011)

Academy Award(R) winner Charlize Theron plays 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.

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Young Adult’ Anger Towards the World Blu-ray Featurette

We have an exclusive look at a behind-the-scenes featurette from the upcoming release Young Adult, which hits Blu-ray and DVD March 13. Take a look at this critically-acclaimed dramedy starring Charlize Theron and Patton Oswalt with new footage that explores the hatred shared by these two characters.

Nominated for a 2012 Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture-Comedy or Musical, Charlize Theron is "a comic force of nature" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) as Mavis Gary, a former prom queen and current writer of young adult novels who returns to her hometown in order to win back her now-married high school sweetheart. The film reunites director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air) with screenwriter Diablo Cody, whose work was nominated for Best Original Screenplay by the Writers Guild of America and the Broadcast Film Critics Association. Hailed as a "one-of-a-kind comedy" (Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly), Young Adult also stars Patton Oswalt as one of Mavis' former classmates, a role that earned him nominations for Best Supporting Actor from the Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto and Broadcast Film Critics Associations.
