Jason Reitman's new movie "Young Adult," written by his "Juno" collaborator Diablo Cody, opens in limited release December 9. Charlize Theron goes wicked as a teen lit writer who returns to her home town to reclaim her high school boyfriend (Patrick Wilson). The catch? He's happily married, so her scheme doesn't go according to plan. Check out a sneak peek below of three clips from the film, which Reitman describes as a love story between Theron and Patton Oswalt--both are building Oscar buzz. (Our Reitman Q & A will go up shortly.)
