On Saturday, September 16, 2017, casting director Karen Etcoff will join ACME Screening Room in Lambertville to discuss how she created the look of the 1990’s in Landline, the Amazon Studios film starring Edie Falco and Jenny Slate. The discussion begins at 6pm and will be followed by a screening of the film.

The film is about two sisters who suspect their father (John Turturro) may be having an affair.  Older sister Dana (Jenny Slate), 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.

Those unable to attend the live Q&A can still catch the film at ACME Screening room on September 22nd and 30th.
