When two sisters suspect their father (John Turturro) may be having an affair, it sends them into a tailspin that reveals cracks in the family façade. For the first time, older sister Dana (Jenny Slate), recently engaged and struggling with her own fidelity, finds herself bonding with her wild teenage sister Ali (Abby Quinn). The two try to uncover the truth without tipping off their mother (Edie Falco) and discover the messy reality of love and sex in the process.

"Landline doesn't exploit the retro setting for gimmicky punchlines. Amidst the turmoil of 2017, 1995 feels like a comfortable and quaint world to step back into."
- Zach Schonfeld, Newsweek
"With Landline, Robespierre once again proves herself to be one of the funnier filmmakers working. Just as important, she proves herself to be one of the more empathetic directors out there. "
- Max Cea, Salon.com
"In sweetly calibrated moments — a downtown drug deal gone wrong; Falco alone under strobe lights, swaying ecstatically to Donna Summer — Landline finds the analog joy it’s reaching for. "
- Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
"Slate isn't the star of 'Landline,' but her daffy, unpredictable presence keeps it fizzing while her co-stars, especially Quinn, deliver brave, nervy performances."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"The actors are all terrific: as Ali, Quinn has a radiant wildcat sweetness--there's fragility behind all that hissing. And Slate, with her marvelous, helium-tinged voice, is a pure pleasure to watch."
- Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine
"[A] richly detailed, often moving film; it's less a slice of life than a free-spirited blurt of it."
- Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
"A uniformly excellent cast and some genuinely moving moments make it easy to fall for, especially if you're a fan of Obvious Child's returning star, Jenny Slate."
- Aisha Harris, Slate
"Landline is a film about many things: sisterhood, infidelity, growing up, marriage, parenting, self-discovery, etc. That it manages to have illuminating insights about each, and none feeling like they are taking the backseat, is a feat unto itself. "
- Jordan Raup, The Film Stage
"Landline is a textured, silly, sweet, and deeply felt comedy that traces the distance between the most satisfied parts of ourselves and the most desperate, between the people we are and the people we think we should be, and it finds that — for better or worse — we’re all stuck somewhere in between. "
- David Ehrlich, Indiewire
"Slate proves again to be a special talent, able to go from goofy-silly to volcanically desirous in the time it takes to gulp a Zima. Falco makes every minute of her small screen time sizzle and Quinn has great skill as a preternaturally mature teen."
- Mark Kennedy, Associated Press
