Trivia

This film is a feature-length evolution of Sian Heder's 2006 short, Mother (2006). In fact, the the script for Mother is re-used almost word-for-word in the sequence where Tallulah first encounters Madison and her mother in the hotel suite. See more »

Goofs

When Tallulah takes a bath with the baby, the orange colored shampoo is (almost) right in front of the camera from one angle, but on the other side of the tub from second angle. See more »

Wonderfully Done Movie That Will Stir Your Heart
10 August 2016 | by Andrea MSee all my reviews

The actors bring these characters to life and you remarkably wind up falling in love with all of them. They became people for me and I will probably think about them for days. I would like to give a special nod to Allison Janney, whom I remember fondly from her "West Wing" days. She is an actress to be treasured. I love seeing real women having real, complex feelings. Her presence in this movie is a gift.

Without rehashing the plot summary, I will simply say that "Tallulah," is an incredibly well written, acted, and directed story about love and connection that I had the pleasure of immersing myself in this afternoon. Not many movies do that for me these days. That is why, after years of using IMDb, before there was such a thing as "an app for that," I have been inspired to write my first ever review here.
