Grandma's House is a heartfelt family drama film released in 2016. The movie, directed by Paul D. Hannah, stars Loretta Devine as Margie, an elderly woman who is a devoted grandmother to her three grandchildren: Jasmine (Coco Jones), Sharron (Paige Hurd), and Byron (Jordan Calloway). The movie is set in a small town in Georgia, where Margie has lived her entire life. She has always been the backbone of her family and is deeply loved by her grandchildren. However, when her health takes a turn for the worse, Margie is forced to confront the fact that she may not have much time left.

Margie's impending mortality is particularly difficult for Jasmine, who is just starting to come of age and is struggling with issues of identity and independence. Jasmine is also dealing with the fallout from her parents' divorce and feels caught between the demands of her mother and father.

Sharron, Margie's other granddaughter, is struggling with her own problems. She is rebellious and has gotten involved with the wrong crowd, leading to tension between her and Margie. Sharron is also dealing with the pain of losing her mother, who died when she was young.

Byron, Margie's grandson, is the only one of the grandchildren who is not blood-related to her. He is the son of Margie's late daughter-in-law and has always been treated like family by Margie. However, Byron is struggling with his own issues of identity and belonging, as he feels like an outsider in his own family.

As Margie's health deteriorates, the three grandchildren are forced to come together and confront their own issues, as well as their feelings about Margie's impending death. They must also navigate the tensions that arise between them as they struggle to figure out their roles both in Margie's life and in their own lives.

The movie is an emotional and at times difficult watch, as it deals with weighty themes like mortality, family, and identity. However, it is ultimately a hopeful movie that celebrates the power of love and family in the face of adversity.

One of the standout performances in the movie is by Loretta Devine, who gives a nuanced and powerful performance as Margie. Devine is able to capture the many layers of Margie's personality, from her feisty spirit to her vulnerability in the face of her declining health.

The three young actors who play Margie's grandchildren also deliver strong performances. Coco Jones is particularly impressive as Jasmine, bringing depth and nuance to a character who is dealing with a lot of complex emotions.

Overall, Grandma's House is a moving and heartfelt movie that will appeal to anyone who has experienced the joys and challenges of family life. It is a powerful reminder of the importance of love, family, and tradition, and is sure to leave a lasting impression on viewers.
