Expanding to almost 1000 screens this weekend is one of the year's best films: 'Young Adult,' a caustic black comedy from screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman ('Juno') about a former high school queen bee (Charlize Theron) who returns to her hometown to win back the married former boyfriend she used to date. Awkward! Also, a great opportunity for Cody and Reitman to comment on beauty, high-school bullying and how nostalgia sometimes isn't the best thing for people to use as a crutch.
