The 2015 Sundance Film Festival kicked off last night in Park City, Utah, and runs until January 30, when the fest will end with the world premiere of Grandma in a Closing Night Gala screening on Friday, January 30. Deadline has the first clip from director Paul Weitz's latest project, which features comedy legend Lily Tomlin squaring off against rising star Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars, The Stand) in a foul-mouthed exchange.
The story centers on self-described misanthrope Elle Reid (Lily Tomlin), who has her protective bubble burst when her 18-year-old granddaughter, Sage (Julia Garner), shows up needing help. The two of them go on a day-long journey that causes Elle to come to terms with her past and Sage to confront her future. This scene shows how Elle tries to get Cam (Nat Wolff) to come up with some cash, since it appears Cam got Sage pregnant, with Elle taking some harsh potshots at young Cam and his attempt at a beard.
John Cho, Laverne Cox, Sam Elliott, Judy Greer, Marcia Gay Harden, Elizabeth Peña, Mo Aboul-Zelof and Meg Crosbie round out the supporting cast for this new comedy. Check out the scene below, and stay tuned to find out if Grandma finds distribution this week at Sundance.
