Advice: when life already has you down, don't steal a baby to try and make it better.
It's been almost 10 years since Ellen Page went through the woes of a high school pregnancy in Juno with on-screen mom Allison Janney. Next month the two will be brought together by a baby again in Netflix's Tallulah, one of the networks acquisitions from this year's Sundance Film Festival. But the two film's similarities stop with the baby.
Tallulah (Page) is the girlfriend of Margo's (Janney) estranged son and has fallen on desperate times. After being turned away by Janney when they first met, Tallulah returns, this time with a baby she claims is Margo's grandchild. Chaos ensues on one side of the baby's life as its real mother (Tammy Blanchard) alerts the authorities, including a CPS officer played by Uzo Aduba, to help her find her child, while a relationship is fostered on the other side between Margo, who thinks she's found an unknown piece of her son, the baby, and Tallulah.
Tallulah premieres on Netflix July 29.
