For a generation raised on divorce and wall-to-wall carpeting, LANDLINE is an honest comedy about what happens when sisters become friends and parents become humans.
Plot: A teenager living with her sister and parents in Manhattan during the 1990s discovers that her father is having an affair.

Ms. Quinn and Ms. Slate at a middle ground!
Hark; the epitome of light and what is missing from films is at a new high. Not so much the cinematography, but the essence of filmography is normal. What separates this film from others in its’ category is the bond. A mother, a daughter, and a first daughter. The despondent father is cruical to the first daughter (Ms. Slate). Mother is down-trodden so she turns to both. Being alive and the exact opposite of the willing suspension of disbelief carried this film; ever-expansive unto a world of “non-Westside New Yorkers”. In the view of how transgression erects itself; not one person but Ms. Quinn. In her role; the passion for the “live” life excels her aura. First daughter is the care-giver in this whopping tale of family, feuds, and freshness. It is in the opinion of the author of this Review that Ms. Slate wins. Costuming was accurate and the sexual scenes were bountiful and hilarious. Real People Doing Real Things. Real People doing real things.
2 sisters with daddy trouble
I was rather surprised by Landline. For one thing it’s about two sisters and neither had an infectious disease neither was a serial killer, prostitute or wearing spandex in the Marvel Universe.
Just some real drama and although spotty here and there script wise there was some really very telling moments about the sisters here. The big deal in the film is that dear old dad is something of a ‘man whore’ I suppose you’d say. Played rather carelessly by fine actor John Turturro. The guy is honestly a bit of a slump.
More interestingly is the affair of the older sister Dana, played very nicely by actress Jenny Slate, she and her younger sister Ali, Abby Quinn are sterling as sisters, really sympatico.
The ending felt right as well with dad slumping in, I mean I don’t see Harvey Weinstein catching a break!
Still, sisters rarely get to be shown on the big screen and here I liked the tough but knowing interplay between them. I’d of liked to see more of them if this were a series instead of a movie.
There is some drag however, a sort of malaise to the action that draws on too long. The film could have used a more savvy Editor, I hate to get tech with you here, I mean this isn’t AFI… but the Editor is very, very important! Especially one who isn’t swayed by a Director who is often a tad too close to the material.
Lastly is the time 1995, wow, I’d forgotten how cool it could be back then. It was great to see this decade again. Which is surprising to say the least!
See Landline, some of you may really hate it but I think many of you might like it too.
