Elle Reid (Lily Tomlin) has just gotten through breaking up with her girlfriend when her granddaughter, Sage, unexpectedly shows up needing $600 before sundown. Temporarily broke, Grandma Elle and Sage spend the day trying to get their hands on the cash, as their unannounced visits to old friends and flames end up rattling skeletons and digging up secrets.

The problem is Elle is more or less broke so, without losing heart, they start on a road trip to find as much cash as they can lay their hands on. On the way both women come face to face with their pasts and the life choices that brought them to this point in time and it is revelatory for both.
Now this is billed as a comedy and a lot of it derives from the sour comments and general bad behaviour of Elle. If you think old people being cranky has been done to death as a vehicle for comedy then best to give this a miss. I like it as it works on more than one level. The grumpiness belies a real person who cares, loves and has been through life and she keeps the scars hidden by the outward attitude. As such I felt that this film does indeed have a lot to offer and is very much worth investing the time to see it.

More "True to life" than the usual American movies.
I enjoyed it.
This is a tour-de-force by Lily Tomlin and a great movie. I loved it and my husband liked it.Published 2 months ago by M Taylor
