Landline (2017)

By The Miniplex (other events)

11 Dates Through Aug 29, 2017

The director of OBVIOUS CHILD has teamed up again with her muse Jenny Slate, plus Coen Brothers muse John Turturro and NURSE JACKIE's incomparable Edie Falco for another "very funny film about people dealing with very serious situations." This one is set in 1995, to make things even more awkward. "Gillian Robespierre once again proves herself to be one of the funnier filmmakers working. Just as important, she proves herself to be one of the more empathetic directors out there." - Salon

SYNOPSIS: When two sisters suspect their father (John Turturro) may be having an affair, it sends them into a tailspin that reveals cracks in the family façade. For the first time, older sister Dana (Jenny Slate), recently engaged and struggling with her own fidelity, finds herself bonding with her wild teenage sister Ali (Abby Quinn). The two try to uncover the truth without tipping off their mother (Edie Falco) and discover the messy reality of love and sex in the process. Not rated. 93 mins.

"Few period pieces get our dynamic relationship with the now so right, or chart so smartly how the present shifts even under the feet of the youngish." - Village Voice

"That most elusive of indie dramedies: An honestly told story about the messiness of human relationships... A textured, silly, sweet, and deeply felt comedy that traces the distance between the most satisfied parts of ourselves and the most desperate, between the people we are and the people we think we should be." - Indiewire
