Casual, raises personal questions.

Young Adult brings the harsh practical life after high school especially if one leaves his/her town. The movie is very casual, just like you are watching a documentary of an insecure, alcoholic and depressed woman. Theron succeeds on delivering a total wreck character.
Sexuality is somehow, mild, which includes a one-night stand which is just cut to bed with the sleeping man's upper half shown under sheets with his arm on her but she has a shirt on. Then there's a scene which CSM refers to as 'show's Theron's skin'. Well it's not a sex scene. Infact, she is in a restaurant but she wears revealing dress but uses bra cups to cover the nudity. Then there is an interrupted kiss. And the final one is a sex scene (I just read in one of the reviews because I forwarded it).
Violence is almost none, well, you can't call it violence. A crippled character tells his story 2 times which is quite brutal. Another crippled man is said to have a car wreck. Theron's character is drunk and crashes her car in a streetlight towards the end.
Language is between mild and strong you can say. There are a few f-words throughout the movie along with s**t. The climax includes many f-bombs because Theron's character humiliates her ex-boyfriend's wife in front of everyone. She also calls her b****h.
In terms of drinking, well, the strong point of the movie. The main character is an alcoholic and she drinks a lot. And by a lot, I mean a lot. She starts her day with a Coke and goes on drinking.
All in all, the movie raises questions about self-identity towards the end and how those people who are arrogant and mean in their youth suffer in the adolescence while other people who know them still idealize them. The story was half predictable. Though it seemed that she will return back to her city life in the end but most movies revolutionise the character. Well, this one doesn't. She picks back her big city life. So the there wasn't
a positive message to learn. It's funny too but you can watch alone.

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.

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.
