Achieves a perfect balance in tone between comedy and drama, in which plenty of potentially melodramatic events and situations are rendered delicately, realistically, dryly, perfectly. I loved this movie.
A great role for a truly great talent, who just happens to be in her 70s. The movie is just under 90 minutes, but Tomlin delivers in that short time. Her wise-cracking one-liners are tempered by a real sense of loss and vulnerability.
Lily Tomlin is simply phenomenal as the very liberal, short-tempered grandma. She hasn't been in a lot of movies of late, so it's easy to forget that while she's best known for her comedic work, she's always been a fine dramatic actress.
