Grandma

Lily Tomlin (I Heart Huckabees) is misanthropic Elle in this comedy from Academy Award-nominated director Paul Weitz (About a Boy). When her 18-year-old granddaughter, Sage (Julia Garner, Electrick Children) comes crashing through her heavily bordered life, the pair go on a day-long trip to sort out their separate life crises – Elle dealing with the past and Sage bracing for the future.

An initially breezy family comedy about mothers, daughters and abortions that slowly sneaks up on you and packs a major wallop.

Possibly the greatest thing about Grandma is that it passes the Bechdel test with flying colours, better than any film I've seen recently.

Not for faint-hearted or easily offended, but definitely for those who believe youth is wasted on the young.

Grandma is Lily Tomlin in her first lead role since Big Business in 1988 and that's recommendation enough. It's a mix of the erudite, the tough and the goofy.
