What’s Leaving HBO: August 2019

This Month’s Highlights


A small marvel of a film that’s easy to overlook, Tully stars a terrific Charlize Theron as Marlo, an overworked and overwhelmed mother of three children who reluctantly hires Tully, a night nanny, in order to cope with her increasing exhaustion. When a friendship forms between the two, Marlo starts to feel wistful for her bygone youth, and it takes her places she never thought she’d see again. A tender, humane film about motherhood that reunites Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody, Tully is one of 2018’s best, and you should catch it if you missed it the first time.
