Tallulah is a 2016 Netflix original comedy-drama that reunites the Juno mother-daughter actors Ellen Page and Allison Janney. Page plays the titular character Tallulah, “Lula,” a young woman who lives on the road in her van with her boyfriend Nico. After telling Nico about her far-fetched dream of living in India, he disappears. Lula heads off to New York City to find Nico’s mother, and in the process, encounters a drunken woman with a baby that deserves better. Lula kidnaps the child and finds shelter with Nico’s mother Margaret, played by Janney, under the guise that the child is “Margo,” Margaret’s granddaughter. What unfolds is a journey of self-discovery, love, family, and parenthood.
