TRAILER: Tallulah

Entertainment Weekly recaps:

Juno co-stars Ellen Page and Allison Janney are teaming up to care for a baby yet again, but with fewer laughs this time around. The first trailer for the upcoming Netflix dramedy Tallulah sees a homeless young woman named Lu (Page) posing as a housekeeper and taking a baby away from negligent mother Carolyn (Tammy Blanchard) after witnessing her dependence on alcohol and emotional breakdown. Unsure where to turn, Lu brings the stolen baby to the only responsible adult she knows: her ex-boyfriend’s mother, Margo (Janney), and lies that the child is her granddaughter.

    Netflix’s original content alone is worth the subscription and I love Ellen Page.

    • Rambie

      This is an great movie, I seen it at Sundance this year. Ellen Page was wonderful and the performance by Allison Janney really took my breath away.

    • Agreed. But they also have a lot else available including (at the moment) The Big Short and Spotlight. (both must-sees for anyone who hasn’t already)

    Reads like a Hallmarkdramedy. Zo glad we shot the tv dead long ago.

    • MaryOGrady

      I should do that, too, but last evening I got to watch “Brief Encounter” commercial free on Turner Classic Movies. TCM and C-SPAN keep me worshiping the one-eyed god in the front room.

      • Beagle

        Up voted because I also love TCM. Special bonus — Montgomery Clift marathon on my birthday!

        • MaryOGrady

          You are a lucky person. My birthday is Dec. 25 so I always seem to get “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “Miracle on 34th St.” Both fine films, but year after year…

        • TuuxKabin

          That would be worth watching.

      • TuuxKabin

        The one eyed god, love that! My dad would tell us we’re going to ‘grow square eyes’ watching the tv, would stand in front of it, turn it off and tell us to go out side and play. At least you’re watching something that interests you. I’ve gotten interested in politics late in life and would subscribe to whichever cable provider has C-SPAN . . . if we had the one-eyed god.

          My legs were going to ROT and fall off from all the radiation emitted by the OEG (one-eyed god). Radiation exposure was directly related to one’s proximity to OEG.

          • TuuxKabin

            Now our ears are going to rot and fall off from cell phone use. Ha.

            Each of us three kids had a ‘spot/marker’ on the carpet in front of the OEGM (One Eyed God Monster) and could not watch from another spot closer or further from the set.

            I’ve probably had more radiation exposure from dental x-rays than the OEGM.

        • MaryOGrady

          Good old C-SPAN provides all its programming plus decades of archives to anyone with a decent Internet hook-up. Please check it out!
          Without cable service you will not be able to get their live coverage but everything they do is available to be watched on the Web within minutes of the end of their taping.
          During the Bu$h II era, C-SPAN had some strange advantages. Being non-commercial, they are always assigned unusual, not to say undesirable, camera placement at public events. Once, when the pResident was engaged in a pseudo-debate during the 2004 campaign, C-SPAN clearly revealed the earpiece with which he was fed much better answers than his shriveled little brain could have come up , with in a million years. A friend and I were sending each other messages on-line across the country: “Do you see *that*?” “Yes, I see that!”

          • TuuxKabin

            I remember that. Photos from the rear showed the bulge of his ‘pack’, described as poor tailoring. Couldn’t believe it, but there it was.

  • MaryOGrady

    Many people affected by adoption as practiced in the US did not find “Juno” funny at all.

  • as they say, “Work is work.” this doesn’t sound like my cup of tea, but always happy to see a family member enjoy some success.

  • I’ve heard a lot of whining of late that movies now are all big budget blockbusters. The reality is that the more personal movies are being produced for HBO and other subscription services. Is that really a problem? that’s how most of us were going to watch them anyway and they’ve just eliminated the pretense that they’re going to make a lot of money in theaters with this kind of film. They’ve eliminated the expense of opening a film in theaters and can focus on actually making money off those of us happy to pay for Netflix or Hulu or whatever to be able to see quality programming and films. Seems like a good plan actually.

    If you don’t have Vice/Viceland on your channel lineup I recommend checking out Ellen Page in the short series “Gaycation” where she and her friend travel to other countries to explore what life is like for LGBT citizens in those countries.
