ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Lily Tomlin shines in this caustically funny family drama from filmmaker Paul Weitz (ABOUT A BOY).

Temporarily broke, Grandma Elle and Sage spend the day trying to get their hands on the cash as their unannounced visits to old friends end up rattling skeletons and digging up secrets. A critical favorite at its Sundance Film Festival premiere, and rated 91% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, GRANDMA also features Marcia Gay Harden, Laverne Cox, Judy Greer, and Sam Elliott.
