At the Movies: Grandma
October 1 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm PDTFree
Join GenPride at the Movies Friday, October 1 at 6 pm for a free online showing of the award-winning independent film Grandma starring Lily Tomlin, Julia Garner, and Marcia Gay Harden and a cameo by Laverne Cox. In Grandma, lesbian poet and professor, Elle Reid, is grieving over the recent death of her long-term partner when her teenage granddaughter stops by unexpectedly to ask for money to pay for an abortion.
This subversive comedy is a warm, yet gritty feminist road trip movie of sorts, an examination of family dynamics, and an illustration of the value of intergenerational relationships. Throughout their journey, Elle teaches her granddaughter not only how to stand up for herself, but also not to let anyone mistreat her. Rolling Stone magazine called this film a “Tomlin tour de force.”
