The premise may sound sitcommy, but Sarandon makes everything work

Susan Sarandon is wonderful in this story of Marnie Minervini, who takes the substantial money left to her by her recently passed husband and moves from New Jersey to Los Angeles so she can be near her very busy daughter (Rose Byrne). While her daughter loves her mom, she is too occupied to tend to her. Marnie takes care of that by meeting locals, learning their needs and bankrolling them.

The premise, based in part on truth, may sound sitcommy, but Sarandon makes everything work. She's delightful. Co-starring J.K. Simmons, Michael McKean, and Cecily Strong.
