Description

“Grandma” features an all-star ensemble cast led by Lily Tomlin and including Julia Garner, Marcia Gay Harden, Judy Greer, Laverne Cox and Sam Elliott.


A misanthropic poet, estranged from her daughter and recovering from a breakup, agrees to take her granddaughter across Los Angeles and help her find the money she desperately needs.


Lily Tomlin is Elle Reid. Elle has just gotten through breaking up with her girlfriend when Elle's granddaughter Sage unexpectedly shows up needing $600 bucks before sundown. Temporarily broke, Grandma Elle and Sage spend the day trying to get their hands on the cash as their unannounced visits to old friends and flames end up rattling skeletons and digging up secrets.


“Acerbically funny … Lily Tomlin giving a career-capping performance.” — Stephen Holden, The New York Times


“A story about three generations of women and how they interact with each other. Lily Tomlin adds heart, soul, and, naturally, tons of comedy.” — Brian Moylan, The Guardian


“Lily Tomlin has never been better.” — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone


“Tomlin’s greatest role since ‘Nashville’. Genuinely funny, totally smart and generous.” — Nathaniel Rogers, The Film Experience
