SYNPOSIS: Set in Manhattan in 1995, LANDLINE follows three women in one family brought together by divorce. 17 year-old Ali (Quinn) finds out her dad’s (Turturro) having an affair, her older sister Dana (Slate) is having one too, and their mother Pat (Falco) might not be the last to know. Roaming a New York whose streets are as filthy as these ladies’ mouths, LANDLINE explores what happens when sisters become friends, parents become people, and kids do and don’t become their parents. It is an examination of monogamy, honesty and the universal truth that everyone loves sex, drugs, and Benihana.
