@TribecaFilmfest | Paul Weitz brings Lily Tomlin as GRANDMA (3/4) #TFF #TFF2015

What would you call a film, if it can culminate various topics of LGBT, freedom of choice, parenting, artist past their peak, old-age, wide age gap relations, romance & love, amongst many others, and club it all into an emotional comedy? I'll call it Paul Weitz's "GRANDMA".

Yes, it's a very funny movie, sharing a day in life of grandma (Lily Tomlin), who has to spend the day trying to help her granddaughter (Julia Garner) arrange $630 for an abortion. 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.

The topic does not sound funny, and it's not been treated as a joke either. But the characters and their situations bring genuine humor, uplifted by some amazing performances by the entire cast. The scenes are very tightly written, and movie has been very well edited to keep the entire drama tightly wrapped in only good 78 mins. The movie has some amazing parts and cameos by likes of Judy GreerMarcia Gay HardenSam ElliottJohn Cho, amongst many others.

If you are not into sensitive topics as suggested above or strictly pro-life, you MAY skip the film. If you are a fan of light hearted bUT heartfelt comedy, which is also socially relevant, you would like the film.
