» The A.V. Club Review: Netflix’s Tallulah steals your heart—and a child

Plus: Sharks, bakers, and a real-life Friday Night Lights
by Dennis Perkins, published on July 29, 2016 - 12:31 AM


Tallulah (Netflix, 3:01 a.m., Friday): Ellen Page and Allison Janney star in this indie dramedy making its debut on Netflix. Page is one of those “free spirits” (paging Nathan Rabin) who decides that she’d be a better mother to a neglected infant than the child’s irresponsible mom, and steals the kid. Passing the child off as the result of her relationship with an ex-boyfriend, she shows up on the doorstep of her ex’s mom (Janney), explaining that the baby is Janney’s grandchild. (Conveniently, Janney is estranged from her son, allowing for all manner of misunderstandings before she gets around to giving the guy a call.) Decent reviews all around for this film from writer-director Sian Heder (Orange Is The New Black), and Page and Janney should certainly have teamwork enough to raise a child at this point, having already worked together in both Juno and Touchy Feely.
