Movie Info

Between the Lines was deftly directed by Joan Micklin Silver on a miniature budget. The drama is set in the offices of an "alternative" newspaper, vaguely reminiscent of The Village Voice (where Silver once worked). The large ensemble cast of then-unknowns is headed by John Heard, playing a photojournalist who takes time off from trying to save the world to have a brief affair with Lindsay Crouse. Other employees and hangers-on include Jeff Goldblum, Jill Eikenberry, Bruno Kirby, Lane Smith and Marilu Henner.

Critic Reviews for Between the Lines

All Critics (3)

The film serves more as a showcase for its talented performers (John Heard, Jeff Goldblum, Lindsay Crouse) than as critical view of the underground press or a compelling study of disenchantment among 1960s radicals.
