Movie Reviews

Reviewed by Argemaluco 8 / 10


I didn't expect too much from the film Grandma, but it ended up being quite a pleasant surprise. Its story is simple and it barely covers one day in the life of the characters, but it works as an adequate frame of a genuine character study, in which even the most trivial events (like buying a coffee or taking a taxi) reveal new aspects and hidden emotions from the characters. I suppose that the tragicomic adventures from an irascible grandma and her granddaughter touring a city looking for money (500 dollars) might not seem particularly attractive material for many spectators, but as I previously said, the point of the movie is gradually drawing the endearing relationship both of them develop with each other, also extending to the granddaughter's mother, perfectly played by Marcia Gay Harden. I would also like to mention the solid works from Elizabeth Peña in her last performance; and Judy Greer, one of my favorite actresses, finally playing a role which takes advantage of her huge talent. Lily Tomlin seems to improve with the age (something which is already a big compliment), facing mature roles with dignity and without losing a pinch of the intensity and energy which have always distinguished her, while Julia Garner also makes an excellent work as the granddaughter while having a perfect chemistry with Tomlin. In conclusion, Grandma is a "small" movie, made with very little money (supposedly 600,000 dollars) and which received minimum publicity, but I enjoyed it pretty much, and I recommend it as a solid and satisfactory film.

Tomlin Is Superb in This Unconventional Indie

Lily Tomlin is superb here starring as the acerbic Elle, a known poet and author, who's having trouble writing again after her same-sex partner, of some 38 years, passed away. One day, Elle gets a surprise visit from her granddaughter Sage, who tells Elle that she's pregnant and needs over $600 for a scheduled abortion later that day. Julia Garner is also excellent in her portrayal of Sage.

Thus the two women will begin an odyssey around town in an attempt to raise the money. At times, things will get crude and rude, and there are some rough spots, but there's also some good humor and I thought it all culminated in an uplifting ending.

Marcia Gay Harden, Judy Greer, and Sam Elliott also add well to the mix in supporting roles. Additionally, the film is well written and directed by Paul Weitz (About a Boy).

All in all, this indie at only 1 hr. and 18 min. in length, led by Tomlin and Garner, with strong support from the cast, kept me absorbed and interested in how it would all play out.

Having an Actor Yell a Line Doesn't Make it Funnier

Wait for cable. This Paul Weitz film has had some mixed, but mostly positive reviews, and we gave it a chance based on the cast line-up: Lily Tomlin, Marcia Gay Harden, Sam Elliott. As it turns out, the best, most persuasive performance comes from pale-as-paper Julia Garner, who plays Tomlin's 18-year-old granddaughter, Sage. Her role mostly requires looking on in dismay as the "grown-ups" whom she hopes will help her rant viciously at each other and dredge up decades-old animosities. By staying out of it, she is revealed as Sage the wise, not Sage the turkey-and-dressing ingredient. People vary sharply in what they find funny. Alas, I don't find a firehose delivery of insults and putdowns more than boring. Tomlin's character, poet Elle Reid, is unnaturally prickly and, faced with the pregnancy of her high school student granddaughter, she's not even sympathetic—or discreet. "She's already pregnant," she announces to a young man who glances Sage's way. The movie's plot revolves around Elle and Sage's attempts to scare up $600 for an abortion, scheduled for 5:30 pm the day the movie takes place. This is not a gleeful situation, either. I'm a fan of Tomlin's acting, but laudatory reviews to the contrary, she doesn't seem really engaged with this highly predictable material. The ill-conceived (you should pardon the expression) and flimsy device of the appointment deadline puts manic urgency into the pair's approaches to a succession of unlikely loan prospects. Tomlin's interaction with the loser boyfriend is unbelievable in every particular, and nothing written for Tomlin's character suggests she has a poetic bone in her body or the necessary mental discipline and insight for that craft.
