First screened in August 2015
Director: Paul Weitz. Cast: Lily Tomlin, Julia Garner, Marcia Gay Harden, Judy Greer, Sam Elliott, Nat Wolff, Laverne Cox, Elizabeth Peña, Lauren Tom, John Cho, Sarah Burns, Meg Crosbie. Screenplay: Paul Weitz.

Twitter Capsule: Stranded in a bad Pieces of April neighborhood for a while. Elliott, Harden help it escape. Slender, but has things to say.

VOR:   A bit broad as a portrait of grief and forced as picaresque, but it's distinctive as a cameo of female anger, both managed and unleashed. Politics on its sleeve to a rare degree.
