Overview

MUST END Thursday, August 17!

The warm and insightful dramatic comedy Landline is set in Manhattan in 1995—a land without cell phones, but abundant in CD listening stations, bar smoke and family dysfunction. Enter the Jacobs. Eldest daughter Dana’s (Jenny Slate) looming marriage to straight-laced Ben (Jay Duplass) prompts a willful dive into her wild side, while her younger sister, Ali (Abby Quinn), is still in high school but leads a covert life of sex, drugs and clubbing. After discovering love letters penned by their father (John Turturro), the sisters try to uncover the truth without tipping off their all-too-composed mother (Edie Falco). In the process, they discover the messy reality of love and sex. Finn Wittrock co-stars. Directed and co-written by Gillian Robespierre (OBVIOUS CHILD).

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