Lily Tomlin quests like a 21st Century Odysseus as she attempts to scrape together $630 with her granddaughter to fund an abortion. They are both broke and the trip around town to visit figures from Tomlin’s past create the backbone of this complex but neatly packaged road trip movie. It’s a journey of feminist discovery (both for the academically-versed grandmother and her uninitiated granddaughter), inter-generational bonding, humour and liberation.
Lily Tomlin is an American actor, comedian, singer, and producer who has graced audiences worldwide with laughter and amusement for a good few decades.
Elle Reid (Tomlin) has just gotten through breaking up with her girlfriend when her granddaughter Sage (Garner) unexpectedly shows up needing 600 dollars before sundown.
