Movie Info

At the offices of a Boston alternative newspaper, the staff members enjoy a positive and open-minded work environment. Music critic Max (Jeff Goldblum) uses his influence to score dates, while news reporter Harry (John Heard) is dating the lovely Abbie (Lindsay Crouse), the publication's lead photographer. However, it seems as though their relatively carefree days are numbered when the owner of a major publishing company buys the paper, leading to more money, but even more changes.

  • For most of its talky running time, Between the Lines is a hangout film in which too few of the characters are good company.

  • It'll make you miss the storied Phoenix that much more...

  • Imagine if you dropped the cast of Return of the Secaucus Seven into a workplace drama, and you have a good sense of the feel of this small but worthy movie.

    July 21, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Joan Micklin Silver, who also directed Hester Street, has fashioned a film so close to home that it will be hard for any journalist to be disassociated from it.

    October 22, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Part journalism drama, part sex comedy, Between the Lines is an overlooked gem that chronicles the Boomer slide from counterculture to complacency.

    July 30, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • As alternative newsweeklies continue to disappear at an alarming rate, soon to become as extinct as dinosaurs, Between the Lines takes on an even greater nostalgic vibe than ever before.
