“Who wants to go to Sonic?”

Grandma

Legendary comedienne Lily Tomlin stars as a feminist, lesbian, poet, occasional academician and generally cranky misanthrope who gets an unexpected visit from her granddaughter (Julia Garner, The Perks of Being a Wallflower). Seems the teen is pregnant and in need of $500 to carry out an abortion that afternoon. Unfortunately, grandma is tapped out. But the two women unite forces, combing through grandma's mental Rolodex looking for someone with money. If only grandma didn't have a talent for burning bridges. A funny, lacerating, emotionally honest indie comedy from writer/director Paul Weitz (American Pie, About a Boy). FULL REVIEW: Lily Tomlin is a tough old bird in emotional comedy about the choices we make in life by Devin D. O’Leary (9/17/2015). 79 minutes R.
