Watch Lily Tomlin do what she does best in trailer for ‘Grandma’

Screen Shot 2015-06-18 at 1.05.55 PM

With her new show Grace and Frankie having premiered last month on Netflix, Lily Tomlin is back on the big screen with Grandma, written and directed by Paul Weitz (About a Boy and In Good Company). The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year and was reviewed by Lane Scarberry for SOS. Here’s the synopsis:

Self-described misanthrope Elle Reid has her protective bubble burst when her 18-year-old granddaughter, Sage, shows up needing help. The two of them go on a day-long journey that causes Elle to come to terms with her past and Sage to confront her future.

While Tomlin looks to be the center of the film, it has a great supporting cast including Julia Garner, Marcia Gay Harden, Sam Elliot, Judy Greer, Nat Wolff, Laverne Cox and John Cho. Dealing with the controversial topic of abortion involving a teenager, the film (based on the trailer) seems to handle the topic with an extremely realistic outlook, primarily without sugar-coating anything. Plus it also explores the bond that can form between two people from two very distinct generations. The film will surely be an interesting look into familial relationships and will showcase Lily Tomlin’s seemingly effortless comedic skills.

Grandma will be released in the US on August 21. Check out the trailer below:
