Gillian Robespierre United States, 2017

Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Landline

Despite being set in '95, Landline feels very much in touch with today's sensibilities, and its themes - passionately layered - are perfectly embodied by the performers, here as charming and talented as they've ever been. Robespierre storylines don't converge in a fashion that really hits, but her vision never stops being observationally sharp and, most importantly, entertaining.
