Remember that awful girl from high school? How you always thought that deep down inside she was a sad, mean-spirited person? How she would eventually might grow up and learn her lesson? Charlize Theron’s character in “Young Adult,” Mavis Gary, is just like that first part.
We can exclusively tell you that starting March 9, you’ll be able to enjoy all of the horribleness of Mavis from the comfort of your own home, when “Young Adult” becomes available On Demand and for digital download. Four days later, on March 13, the Blu-ray and DVD will hits stores with exclusive extras, including an audio commentary featuring director Jason Reitman, deleted scenes and a scene deconstruction.
Also, we get to bring you an exclusive deleted scene straight from the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release. Check it out after the jump!
In the film, Mavis returns to her hometown to win back the love of her life, the high school sweetheart she let go, Buddy Slade (Patrick Wilson). But one minor detail turns Mavis’ crusade for a long lost love into something much more sinister: Buddy and his wife (Elizabeth Reaser) recently had a child together and are happily married.
This fact doesn’t bother Mavis and sets the story of “Young Adult” into motion. Throw in Patton Oswalt as a former high school classmate of Mavis’, whom (surprise, surprise) she doesn’t remember.
For his fourth feature length film, Reitman re-teamed with the Oscar-winning screenwriter, Diablo Cody, for the first time since their 2007 collaboration, “Juno.” “Young Adult” opened to a strong critical response for the film and its lead. Theron earned a Golden Globes nomination for her work.
