Rated R, 1hr 22min
Director: Paul Weitz
Starring: Lily Tomlin, Julia Garner, Marcia Gay Harden
The wonder that is Grandma can be summed up in two words: Lily Tomlin.
- A. O. Scott, New York Times
Elle (Lily Tomlin, in a performance that is, oddly and tellingly, a breakout) is loud and opinionated and stubborn and ornery and angry.
- Megan Garber, The Atlantic
Everything in the movie revolves around the irreplaceable Tomlin, and rightly so. Her entire history as an actor, a comedian, a feminist and a pioneering face of LGBT rights comes into play.
