Cody delivers a stinging repudiation of that sentimental piety that is also Hollywood's biggest and most fatuous lie: that home is always best, and monochrome Kansas is better than dazzling, multi-colour Oz.
Directed by Jason Reitman, this is original, bracing and darkly comic with a strong performance from Theron but it's not as funny or psychologically probing as it should be and there's no escaping the fact Mavis is pretty grim company.
Cody has a great eye and ear for the way women like Mavis can pep-talk themselves out of their depth, and she's shrewd about the chasm between her character's worldly exterior and emotionally immature heart.
