Storyline

Set in Manhattan in 1995, LANDLINE follows three women in one family having lots of sex, drugs, and Japanese food. Navigating monogamy, honesty, and a long-lost New York, the Jacobs family lives in the last days when people still didn't have cell phones and still did smoke inside. Teenage Ali discovers her dad's affair, her older sister Dana uncovers her own wild side, and their mother Pat grapples with the truth that she can't have it all, but her family still has each other. 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.

Love in the 90's--Surprisingly Fun!
22 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

I really liked this movie. The 90's references are borderline over the top but oh so fun to absorb. The sisters are very believable as sisters--part allies and part antagonists. Edie Falco nails it. This is what I suppose would be labeled a 'dramedy', though it felt mostly like a comedy. The realistic and tender portrayals of adultery are very well done. I recommend.
