The first trailer and poster have arrived for the anticipated new comedy-drama Landline,
Robespierre made her feature debut back in 2014 with the critically-acclaimed Obvious Child, which starred Jenny Slate (Gifted) and the two have reunited on the new film which debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival in Utah. In Landline, Slate plays Dana who along with her sister Ali comes to find our their father, played by John Turturro (The Big Lebowski, Transformers), may have been cheating on their mother. The film then examines how the potentially explosive revelations could change their family lives in more than one way.
Speaking to IndieWire back in January, Slate said that the film is a little different than the duo’s previous effort, saying:
“It’s not similar… ‘Landline’ is not the same as ‘Obvious Child,’ except that Gil has a real knack for crafting characters that truly seem that they’re plucked out of our world, whether or not it’s a period piece or it’s taking place six months ago.”
Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Jay Duplass (Beatriz at Dinner) and Abby Quinn (Law & Order: SVU). Robespierre directed the film and co-wrote with her producer Elisabeth Holm.
Landline is released by Amazon Studios on July 21st with a UK release date to be confirmed.
