"Screw you, Grandma!" Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the trailer for Paul Weitz's Grandma, starring Lily Tomlin as a feisty grandma who spends a day trying to round up cash with her granddaughter, played by Julia Garner. Marcia Gay Harden and Judy Greer also co-star. This film actually premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and also played at the Tribeca Film Festival, Sydney Film Festival & Los Angeles Film Festival. I'm not sure how many people it will connect with, as some of the scenes look like they may be a bit grating, but others may find some charm in this quirky indie comedy. Give it a watch.
Here's the first official trailer for Paul Weitz's Grandma, in high def from Apple:
Lily Tomlin stars as Elle Reid. Elle has just gotten through breaking up with her girlfriend when Elle's granddaughter Sage 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. Grandma is both written and directed by American filmmaker Paul Weitz, of the films American Pie, About a Boy, In Good Company, American Dreamz, Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant, Little Fockers, Being Flynn and Admission previously. Sony Pictures Classics will release Grandma in select theaters on August 21st this summer.
I know I shouldn't, but it always surprises me when I see this old masters give amazing performances.

Lily Tomlin (and her good friend ) Jane Fonda are surging in the final quarter! This looks great! Tomlin, Marcia Gay Harden and Sam Elliott? I'm there...gotta see Sam in the latest Gwy er, Blythe Danner movie! See, old people like movies,too! And speaking of old people and old movies...go check out Going in Style with George Burns and Lee Strasberg...

showing..... < Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $177 per hour. I work through this link, < www.Netcash9.Com
