Watching Tully reminded me of a time when calling a movie 'little' was a compliment, a way of saying a director had found ways to locate his movie in a world that seemed entirely real.

There's certainly nothing objectionable about Tully, but there's nothing remarkable either. It resides in that cinematic middle ground of not-bad, not-great, just okay.

The people in this picture live and work and eat like people I once knew.

The film's unhurried pace is actually one of its strengths. Entirely appropriately, the tale unfolds like a lazy summer afternoon and concludes with the crisp clarity of a fall dawn.

A portrait that stays with conversations as they unfold, stays with scenes as they progress naturally and stays with small moments that turn into poetry both beautiful and sad.

Convincingly acted across the board, it's a film with a lot on its mind, a story whose crises slowly gain in intensity, gathering like threatening storm clouds on an initially clear horizon.

It's a lovely thing, as reserved and unfussy as its characters and, like them, full of surprises.
