The most recent time I saw my grandma (Lola) was at Christmas 2013 and she looked really good and healthy. I am thrilled and in awe that she continues to live a rich, full life! And yet, as in all families, there are ups and downs within relationships among the generations that followed my grandma.
The comedy drama film, Grandma, is about an abrasive, strong-willed, widowed poet named Elle (Lily Tomlin) who takes her granddaughter Sage (Julia Garner) on an adventure across Los Angeles in search of the cash she needs to terminate her unwanted pregnancy. All the performances are wonderful in this emotionally engaging story about supporting and understanding family. See: movie trailer
Compassion and forgiveness ultimately shine through as inspirational reasons to see this film. The love between mother, grandmother and daughter prevails despite the acidic feelings in their long term relationships. This film can give you a hopeful vision that any family can heal.
If you have a family with challenging relationships and hurtful memories that seem impossible to heal remember there is always hope. No matter what, do your best to envision healing, compassion, forgiveness and unconditional love to flow into your relationships. And if you need a boost remember to watch an uplifting film about family to help you believe!
