Lewes Film ClubLily Tomlin plays Elle, an acerbic, profane poet, Still recovering from the lost of her partner Violet, she’s in the process of breaking up with her younger girlfriend Olivia, and is defensive angry and stuck when her granddaughter Sage pitches up – pregnant and in need of help. Embarking on a road trip through LA they confront their own demons and each other – with Tomlin simply superb as a grandmother staunchly defending her granddaughter’s rights, and whose curt, dry wit belies her painful past. Brilliantly witty and totally satisfying.
