The new film Grandma tells a story rare for American cinema: a lesbian of advanced years (Lily Tomlin), in mourning for her soul mate and on skittish footing with the much younger woman she's been seeing (Judy Greer), is suddenly thrust into an adventure involving her teenage granddaughter (Julia Garner) and an unwanted pregnancy.

Hollywood, it seems, wants to give Lily Tomlin an award. I'm all for it; she's been around a long time and has done consistently brilliant work. But if she gets an Oscar, it shouldn't be for her new movie, Grandma, which has been receiving rapturous reviews from just about everyone.

Lonna Saunders

As Class Historian for Vassar's first coed freshman class, to me it was historically coincidental that Arianna Huffington opened her address at Vassar's 151st commencement in Poughkeepsie, New York, 75 miles north of New York City, with a reference to her own Greek heritage.

Chronologically they may be in their 30's, 40's, 50s or 60s, but in "gay years" they are maybe only 15. They have come into their own and are not thinking as an adult about the rest of the people with whom they are in relationship.

Is the media suddenly realizing that there are people who were born before 1945 who are still very much alive? And that there's whole bunch of them? According to the 2010 census, if I read Wikipedia correctly, the figure clocks in at 28,282,721.

I rarely miss either the Sundance or Toronto film festivals each year -- but my relationship with the Tribeca film fest has been spottier. Partly that's due to scheduling: For a variety of reasons, I've been out of town for large chunks of the festival each of the past couple of years.

Beauty and humor aren't so common a combination that a theatergoer can afford to get blasé about it. That's what Christina Bianco dispenses in large quantities throughout the Greg Edwards-Andy Sandberg Applications Pending at the Westside Arts/Downstairs, and this spectator is definitely not blasé about it.
