Landline Trailer Features Dysfunctional Comedy

Taking place in 1995, Landline follows Pat Jacobs and her two daughters, Dana and Ali. You know, just your typical lighthearted family romp where Pat’s husband is cheating on her, the older daughter seemingly hates her engagement, and the younger daughter is living a wild life of sex, drugs, and alcohol. You know, a good old family friendly film.

After discovering their father’s affair, Dana and Ali use the opportunity to bond with their mother and deal with their own issues in life. And the trailer takes it from there.

The follow-up to director Gillian Robespierre’s 2014 debut film Obvious Child (also starring Slate), Landline has seen a mostly positive critical response since its debut at the 2017 Sundance Festival. Assuming the critical response remains positive, Robespierre will have a very promising start to her directorial career.

Landline releases in theaters on July 21. It stars Jenny Slate, Edie Falco, Abby Quinn, John Turturro, Jay Duplass, and Finn Witrock.
