added: Thu, Jun 8th '17

Amazon Studios has released the trailer for the upcoming dysfunctional New York family dramedy "Landline," starring comedienne Jenny Slate (Gifted) and relative newcomer Abby Quinn (The Sisterhood of Night) as two quirky sisters who are each fumbling through their own life changes when they suddenly discover their father (John Turturro) is having a secret love affair with someone who is not their mother (Edie Falco).

Set during the payphone days of the mid-1990s, the film is directed and co-written by acclaimed indie filmmaker Gillian Robespierre, who previously worked with Slate on 1994's Sundance hit "Obvious Child."

The cast also includes Transparent's Jay Duplass and American Horror Story's Finn Wittrock.

"Landline" opens in select theaters on July 21st, before expanding to a wide release on August 4th.

When two sisters suspect their father (John Turturro) may be having an affair, it sends them into a tailspin that reveals cracks in the family fa├žade. For the first time, older sister Dana (Jenny Slate), recently engaged and struggling with her own fidelity, finds herself bonding with her wild teenage sister Ali (Abby Quinn). The two try to uncover the truth without tipping off their mother (Edie Falco) and discover the messy reality of love and sex in the process. Set in 1990s Manhattan, Landline is a warm, insightful and comedic drama about a family united by secrets and lies, co-written and directed by Gillian Robespierre (Obvious Child).
