Sony Pictures Classics has released a new trailer for the comedy movie Grandma starring Lily Tomlin and Julia Garner. Tomlin earned rave reviews when Grandma premiered at Sundance, with The Hollywood Reporter saying Grandma is a “sublime match of performer and role.” Tomlin’s performance is also generating early Oscar buzz, and Edward Douglas at ComingSoon said the film will “remind you how much Lily Tomlin is missed as a regular fixture in movies.”
Written and directed by Paul Weitz, the cast also includes Marcia Gay Harden, Judy Greer, Laverne Cox, and Sam Elliott. Grandma will open in theaters on August 21, 2015.
Elle Reid (Tomlin) has just gotten through breaking up with her girlfriend when Elle’s granddaughter Sage (Garner) unexpectedly shows up needing $600 bucks 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.
