Landline (SIFF 2017) - Capsule Review

The Movie: Landline

The Director: Gillian Robespierre

The Cast: Jenny Slate, John Turturro, Edie Falco, Abby Quinn, Jay Duplass, and Finn Wittrock.

"I'm flailing. I'm just trying to find out if the life I've picked for myself is even the one that I want and I don't even know if I'm allowed to ask that question."

By the time Jenny Slate delivers that line, you will have completely, 100% bought into how special of a movie this is. The premise is pretty straight forward with family and fidelity, or lack thereof, at its core but what makes this film truly special is the unexpected honesty that fills every moment and the whole thing is just a brilliant mix of laughter and tears that will leave you wanting to hug everyone involved.

Landline is an official selection of the 2017 Seattle International Film Festival and was featured as part of the Centerpiece Gala.
