Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Aug 30th at 5:00pm for Grandma at the Landmark Bethesda Row . Look for Laine wearing a black and white skirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
In the acerbic comedy Grandma, Lily Tomlin stars as Elle Reid, a misanthropic grandmother who has just gotten through breaking up with her girlfriend. Thats when her granddaughter Sage (Julia Garner) unexpectedly shows up needing $600 before sundown. Temporarily broke, Grandma Elle and Sage spend the day trying to get their hands on the cash by making unannounced visits to old friends and flamesrattling skeletons and digging up secrets in the process. Also starring Marcia Gay Harden, Judy Greer, Laverne Cox, Sam Elliott, Nat Wolff and John Cho, Grandma is written and directed by Paul Weitz (About a Boy, In Good Company, American Pie).
Landmark Bethesda Row features assigned seating. Tickets may be purchased here: https://www.landmarktheatres.com/Booking/bethesda-row-cinema/1900291 The group will be sitting in row F, but if you prefer to sit elsewhere we will meet back in the upstairs theatre lobby after the movie ends to proceed to dinner.
