GRANDMA ★★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - TB

Di­rected by Paul Weitz. Star­ring Lily Tom­lin, Mar­cia Gay Har­den, Sam El­liott

The synop­sis of Grandma reads as if the film were cre­ated with the ex­press in­ten­tion of an­noy­ing Fox News. It’s a cri­sis-preg­nancy com­edy – uh, oh – star­ring Tom­lin as a re­tired les­bian poet whose grand­daugh­ter Sage needs an abor­tion. Be­fore any­one reaches for their plac­ard of choice, note that Grandma is rather more com­pli­cated than its pitch (or anti-arse-numb­ing run time) might sug­gest. It is, in fact, a lovely, touch­ing piece fea­tur­ing Tom­lin at her very best. 16 cert, lim re­lease, 79 min
