Grandma is a low budget comedy drama that stars Lily Tomlin as Elle the grandmother of the title. Still grieving the death of her long term partner, and having just split from her much younger girlfriend, Elle is approached by her 17 year old granddaughter Sage (Julia Gardner) who asks her for $400 so that she can go and get an abortion.

Unable to tell her overbearing mother (Marcia Gay Harden) and with her cantankerous grandma broke, the pair then set off on a road trip to raise the cash. Along the way dope smoking Elle beats up the father of the child with a hockey stick and upsets just about everyone she meets.

As the two travel looking for money Sage begins to learn more and more about her Grandma's past.

Grandma story is paper thin but its story is lifted above the ordinary by an exquisite performance by Tomlin.
