Friday July 28 – Thursday August 3

Featured Film:

Landline at the Uptown and the AMC Seattle

Gillian Robespierre and Jenny Slate’s follow-up to Obvious Child, one of the finest romantic comedies of the decade, is a more expansive film, following the cracking up of a New York family in the mid-90s as two sisters (Slate and Abby Quinn) discover their father (John Turturro) has been cheating on their mother. It’s a coming of age story in triplicate, focusing on women dealing with crises at different stages of life (along the lines of Sylvia Chang’s 20 30 40). I wrote a bit about it at SIFF this year, and this week Melissa takes a longer look at it. Landline opens at the Uptown and what we’ve apparently agreed to call the “AMC Seattle 10” (formerly the Seattle Sundance, formerly the Metro Cinemas).
