Diablo Cody, Responding to Criticism, Says ‘Tully’ Is Meant to Be ‘Uncomfortable’. https://t.co/6yNe51Wzwi— NYT (@NYT) May 2, 2018
No stranger to controversial topics and known for her outside-of-the-norm (and sometimes intentionally unlikable) characters, Diablo Cody's latest film, Tully has been receiving some criticism. Advocates for women who suffer from perinatal mood disorders say that the although the trailer portrays Tully as a lighthearted take on life with a newborn, the film is much darker and could be disturbing for women who experience PMD.
“I’m frankly not surprised that the studio chose to emphasize the warmer, more relatable comedic elements of the movie,” Cody said. “The purpose of marketing is not to educate or to responsibly inform the consumer. They’re trying to sell tickets.”
Someone from the marketing department at Focus Features stated that they were trying not to give too much away about the movie.
