Critic Reviews for Between the Lines
For most of its talky running time, Between the Lines is a hangout film in which too few of the characters are good company.
Imagine if you dropped the cast of Return of the Secaucus Seven into a workplace drama, and you have a good sense of the feel of this small but worthy movie.
Joan Micklin Silver, who also directed Hester Street, has fashioned a film so close to home that it will be hard for any journalist to be disassociated from it.
Part journalism drama, part sex comedy, Between the Lines is an overlooked gem that chronicles the Boomer slide from counterculture to complacency.
As alternative newsweeklies continue to disappear at an alarming rate, soon to become as extinct as dinosaurs, Between the Lines takes on an even greater nostalgic vibe than ever before.
