A Granny Travels Alone Cross-Country In New Film 'This Is Happening'

This is happening movie

You’ve never seen a road movie quite like the hilarious new independent film This Is Happening.

That’s because at the center of the heartfelt comedy is a curmudgeonly grandmother played by the legendary comic actress Cloris Leachman, who seems to have more love for her old stuffed dog than she does for her family. She’s supposed to be placed in an assisted living facility by her straight-laced grandson Philip (James Wolk) and his pot dealing sister Megan (Mickey Sumner).

But a series of wildly unexpected events finds granny traveling cross-country alone, along with five pounds of Megan’s weed, with her two grandchildren in hot pursuit. The film, written and directed by Ryan Jaffe, is in the midst of a crowd funding campaign to ensure widespread distribution.
