Film Series: Grandma

2015. USA. Dir: Paul Weitz. With Lily Tomlin, Julia Garner. 79 min.

 

When a pregnant teen goes to her ill-tempered, radical lesbian grandmother seeking money for an abortion, the two embark on a mini-roadtrip to raise funds for the fast-approaching clinic appointment. Tomlin delivers a memorable performance as the titular matriarch in this offbeat, heartfelt story of love, loss, and family. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Paul Weitz ’88.
