Tallulah: Directed by Sian Heder. With Elliot Page, Allison Janney, Tammy Blanchard, Evan Jonigkeit. Desperate to be rid of her toddler, a dissatisfied Manhattan housewife hires a stranger to babysit and ends up getting much more than she bargained for.

“Tallulah, or Lu as everybody calls her, lives in her truck with her boyfriend, Nico. Sick of her fear to commit to anything, he leaves her, so she decides to go look for him at his mothers house. In the process she comes across a toddler neglected by its alcoholic and careless mother and she ends up kidnapping the baby. She then pretends itu0026#39;s hers and Nicou0026#39;s baby and Nicou0026#39;s mother starts taking care of her. A bond is slowly created between the two women.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s a pretty good movie that I would recommend. youu0026#39;re left wondering during the entire movie how and if that Impossible situation is going to be solved. Even if the theme is pretty u0026quot;dramaticu0026quot; the actors, by giving a really good and convincing performance, give the characters something not pathetic, not illusional, but deeply human. At the beginning of the movie, the main character is not at all lovable. But the more you learn about her past, the more you understand her and her behavior. We learn to appreciate her the same way that the mother does.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe metaphor of the gravity, that starts in the first scene of the movie till the end, to describe somebodyu0026#39;s attachment to something is relatable and adds something to the story. The entire movie feels like a coming of age story where Lu needs to learn to stop running away and the mother to start holding on to something.”
