Trivia

This film is a feature-length evolution of Sian Heder's 2006 short, Mother (2006). In fact, the the script for Mother is re-used almost word-for-word in the sequence where Tallulah first encounters Madison and her mother in the hotel suite. See more »

Another Gem with Ellen Page & Cast
6 November 2016 | by (Wild West Wyoming) – See all my reviews

Being a senior citizen as I am, it's easy to get stuck in the past watching old familiar movies. A couple of years ago I decided to "not go there" and see what the young crop of actors have that I might be missing. One of my first "new" favorites was Ellen Page.....a powerhouse of a actor in such a small package. I believe Tallulah is about her 10th movie I've seen her in and have never been disappointed! You know a movie is top notch when you forget they are all acting and the story becomes real in your mind. Such is Tallulah. A powerful story that makes you feel happy and sad while laughing and crying. A very endearing movie that I'm sure I'll repeat watch!
