Featured Review


One of my all-time favorite films is About a Boy (2002), starring Hugh Grant and directed and co-scripted by Paul Weitz from Nick Hornsby's novel.

When I found out that Grandma was directed and written by Weitz, it gave me a dash of hope. Originally, I didn't have positive expectations for the premise of a lesbian grandmother (Lily Tomlin) trying to help her granddaughter (Julia Garner) get money for an abortion. It sounded like a Hallmark movie.
