    Jason Reitman's Young Adult, with Charlize Theron at dead center for the entire film, is a dark, yet entertaining film about a thirty-ish ex-prom queen who returns home, only to crash and burn among her old friends. An amazing performance, that I though about for days. Shot on an Arri Alexa, and posted via a 2k DI, Paramount's new Blu-ray is a clone of the original theatrical release, and therefore as perfect as can be. Beautifully photographed, and as captured on Blu-ray, a perfect piece of technical Blu-ray entertainment. Highly Recommended. RAH

    I'm glad someone else is singing this movie's praises. The more I think about it, the more I like it because
    I was so surprised to see a movie where, at the end, the lead has learned nothing from her trials & tribulations and just continues on in a cloud of self-delusion.
    It would have been nice if Theron, Cody or Reitman had gotten some Oscar attention.
