Landline

Final Week!

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. Set in 1990s Manhattan, Landline is a warm, insightful and comedic drama about a family united by secrets and lies, co-written and directed by Gillian Robespierre (Obvious Child).

USA, 2017, 93 minutes, Directed by Gillian Robespierre

  • “Wise, witty, and wonderful. If 'Obvious Child' was her 'Annie Hall,' this is (Robespierre’s) 'Hannah and Her Sisters.'"

    – Jason Bailey, FLAVORWIRE
  • "It's tart, sad, honest, funny, unsentimental and yet very sentimental. It's also a delightful reminder of our past."

    – Mark Kennedy, AP
  • “A textured, silly, sweet, and deeply felt comedy.”

    – David Ehrlich, INDIEWIRE
  • "Just as emotionally open and just as funny as Obvious Child. Jenny Slate is a pure pleasure to watch."

    – Stephanie Zacharek, TIME
  • "Go see the film. Sweet and unrelentingly funny."

    – Zach Schonfeld, NEWSWEEK
  • “Great cast and solid writing…the New York-set comedy’s title tells you all you really need to know: It’s one big love letter to the ‘90s.”

    – Sara Stewart, NEW YORK POST
  • “Richly detailed, often moving…Robespierre’s film, abundant in pleasures and insights, is more varied and confident than her debut, 2014’s OBVIOUS CHILD. Jenny Slate dazzles.”

    – Alan Scherstuhl, THE VILLAGE VOICE
