Brutal look at life after high school

I've yet to learn what life after high school is like, but I hope it's nothing like the world of "Young Adult." Charlize Theron deserves an Oscar nod for her nasty, delussional, and sad role as Mavis. She always looks defeated, but still has enough of her high school confidence to think she can win over her old sweetheart. Patton Oswalt also delivers a fine performance. Quite a bit of swearing and an awkward sex scene, but nothing a mature 15 yr. old couldn't handle.

INFO THAT"S IMPORTANT

Good movie,
a few times the main charcter has some alcohol at a bar.
You see the mian woman very close to naked and she has sex with a guy but no nudity just the backs of the couple under a sheet.
The main character kisses a married man who has a baby.
Strong language, especially a scene towards the end where they say f--k about every 10 seconds.
