Landline is a sneaky good film by Amazon Studios that everyone should check out. Whether on DVD or through Prime, this film surely won't disappoint. Besides the genuinely hard-hitting truth about relationships and being afraid of losing that interest for the other person, Landline delivers some fun humorous moments, and of course, some awesome talent on display.
The setting in 1995 makes the film all that enticing with it's irony. Removing the spectrum of communicating through texting or internet to confront issues as we have today, the affair of their father is up in the air, and addressing such an issue takes courage and some massaging. It's an interesting message in how difficult, yet authentic, communication back then.
Jenny Slate is pretty funny in a her role, Abby Quinn is really good, and of course, Edie Falco is remarkable.
All in all, Landline is an interesting film worth checking out.
