ELFs & Kino Monoplexx:
A teenager facing an unplanned pregnancy seeks help from her acerbic grandmother, a woman who is long estranged from her daughter. Lily Tomlin stars as Elle who's granddaughter Sage unexpectedly shows up needing $600 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.
Lily Tomlin adds heart, soul, and, naturally, tons of comedy, to the role of Elle, a cranky old poet who breaks up with her girlfriend on the morning of a very eventful day in "Grandma", the latest from "About a Boy" director Paul Weitz.
