A uniformly excellent cast and some genuinely moving moments make Landline easy to fall for.
The film is almost as messy as its characters’ love lives, and the early scenes, which take a long time establishing the various subplots, play less like a dramedy than a comedy that could have used more jokes. But the movie gets more earnest and impassioned (not to mention better) as it goes along.
The farcical elements in the plot take far too long to gel, and Robespierre and company push too hard at mixing sad, silly and sweet.
