Friday, May 18, 2018 by CAROLE GORNEY in Focus

Q. My 17-year-old daughter recently shared that her close friend was sexually assaulted by a relative who is now in jail.

“Tully” is an odd little film paced by a brave performance by a veteran, Charlize Theron, and a dymanic turn by a newcomer, Mackenzie Davis.

In “Tully,” not to be confused with the 2000 film of the same title, Marlo (Charlize Theron) is a suburban mother of two, who is expecting a child. She has taken a leave of absence from her job as a teacher, but is still harried.
