Jason Reitman’s new film Tully hits theaters on May 4, reuniting the director, writer Diablo Cody, and star Charlize Theron—the team who ably skewered the final moments of rotting youthful freedom with 2011's Young Adult—to try their hand at motherhood instead. Starring Theron as a struggling mom, and Halt And Catch Fire’s Mackenzie Davis as the young “night nanny” hired to help her survive, the film promises a mixture of lighter comedy and heavy, “oh god, is this my life?” despair that should be familiar to anyone who’s made their way deep enough into the emotional jungles of their 30s and 40s.

If that sounds up your maternal alley (and you’re living in the Chicago area), you’re in luck, because we’re offering some free tickets to an advance screening of the film on Tuesday, May 1. To get them, all you have to do is head here, click “Get Passes,” and get your tickets for a 7:00 p.m. showing at Chicago’s Davis Theater on Lincoln Avenue. Get there early, though; these advance screenings always overbook, and you don’t want that nanny you hired for the evening to go to waste.
