Movie Info

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).

Critic Reviews for Landline

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (7)

Too reliant on exaggerated characters and situations, and often looking and feeling like a TV show.

January 26, 2017 | Full Review…

A textured, silly, sweet, and deeply felt comedy.

January 25, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Somehow manages to fall disappointingly flat all too often.

On a whole, this is an agreeable sophomore effort from the filmmaker-a Sundance movie in one of the better senses.

Great movie bickering becomes a kind of music, but well before the end of "Landline," I just wanted the characters to cease their ranting and storming, or at least lower the volume.

A smart and tender movie that was swept a bit under the rug by its misguided designation as "the abortion comedy."
