Lavender Screen: Grandma
Posted on: 15 Jan 2016 by Claire Vaughan
Our Lavender Screen LGBTQI discussion group meets monthly to discuss the latest films, chaired by our Programme Officer for Film and Cinema, Claire Vaughan. In January they discussed Paul Weitz's Grandma. Here you can listen to that discussion and read the supporting materials. SPOLER ALERT: The recorded discussion contains plot spoilers - we would advise listening after you have seen the film.
Points to consider:
- What is the significance of the title?
- What do you think the film is trying to say about older LGBT characters on screen?
- Why is this film having a major release in 2015/2016?
- How is Lily Tomlin an important figure in the LGBT+ world?
