Grandma movie review: the wisdoms of age and youth

15 March 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Wonderfully, aggressively feminist, a rare crossgenerational portrait of two women getting to know each other amidst a crisis. Smart and acerbically funny. I’m “biast” (pro): love Lily Tomlin; desperate for stories about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Behold Lily Tomlin (Admission) as Elle, the badass grandma everyone should have. Except she is granny only to 18-year-old Sage (Julia Garner: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), who comes to her early one gorgeous Los Angeles morning to ask for help: she needs to find six hundred dollars in the next eight hours to pay for an abortion; her appointment is at 5:45pm, her expected source of funding — her louse of a boyfriend (Nat Wolff: The Intern) fell through — and it’s weeks and weeks before another appointment is available. Elle, a poet and “unemployed academic,” is flat broke, »

Disney's 'Zootopia' Targets March Animated Opening Record

3 March 2016 11:30 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

We may have another record-breaking weekend on our hands as Disney's Zootopia looks as if it will topple 2012's The Lorax to claim the largest March opening weekend for an animated feature. Additional new releases include Gerard Butler's second straight weekend with a new release as he stars in the Olympus Has Fallen sequel, London Has Fallen, and Tina Fey delivers the war comedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. And once the numbers are tallied, this year's top twelve may come close to doubling last year's top twelve total over the same weekend. Getting a head start on its domestic release, Zootopia has already brought in more than $93 million internationally from 31 territories. That said, not only is it opening in the U.S. this week, it's expanding into 14 additional territories including Germany, Russia (where it had $1.3 million in previews last weekend) and China. These international releases obviously upped the film's online footprint worldwide, »

Lily Tomlin On The Gift Of ‘Grandma’, ‘Grace And Frankie’ & Acting As Psychotherapy – AwardsLine

5 January 2016 3:13 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Five-time Golden Globe nominee and Oscar nominee Lily Tomlin has received another two Globe nominations this year for her work this year on the hit Netflix series Grace And Frankie and on the powerful indie Grandma, a film about three generations of women navigating life in all its great complexity. Having enjoyed her previous work with director Paul Weitz in Admission, Tomlin found in Grandma's Elle a role that cuts against type and expectation—a role in which, despite… »

Film Review: 'Grandma'

1 January 2016 4:47 PM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ Lily Tomlin's hot streak continues in her golden years as she tackles the titular role in Grandma (2015). As Elle Reid, Tomlin is a feisty lesbian matriarch helping her granddaughter collect funds for her impending abortion. Part road movie, part ethics play, all heartwarming comedy, writer-director Paul Weitz (About a Boy, Admission) brings to the screen another lovely entry in his own body of work that has been centred on the tender ties that bind family and friends together.
