Netting her a Tony Award for Lead Actress in 1986, this film adaptation of Lily Tomlin’s groundbreaking one-woman show (written with her longtime partner and collaborator Jane Wagner) showcases Tomlin’s performances as both herself and separate personas and characters addressing all aspects of modern life and feminism. It’s a comedic tour-de-force and embodies what makes Tomlin such a complete treasure.
