"Landline" — NY PREMIERE / SPECIAL SCREENING

On the heels of their indie hit "Obvious Child," a comedy involving abortion, whirlwind talent Jenny Slate and writer-director Gillian Robespierre once again tackle a thorny subject with contagious irreverence. "Landline" tracks the splinters that form within a Jewish-Italian Manhattan family when sisters Dana (Slate) and Ali (Abby Quinn) discover that their father (John Turturro) is cheating on their mother (Edie Falco), as they themselves give in to their own taboo temptations. Set amid the retro-wonderland of the 1990s with period-perfect detail — from stone-age Macintosh desktops to stonewashed jeans — this brash comedy is counterbalanced with deeply felt observations on family, relationships and commitment.

With Jenny Slate, John Turturro, Edie Falco, Abby Quinn, Jay Duplass and Finn Wittrock.

+  Q&A with Gillian Robespierre, Jenny Slate, Abby Quinn and Edie Falco to follow screening.
