Between the Lines

(Joan Micklin Silver, 1977)

New Restoration

At a moment when independent journalism is under pressure from multiple directions, this forgotten gem by the trailblazing Joan Micklin Silver (Crossing Delancey) is as relevant as ever. A portrait of the lives and loves of the employees of a Boston alt-weekly newspaper as they’re facing a possible corporate takeover and unemployment, Between the Lines is a New Hollywood treasure with an ensemble cast for the ages. You’ll see early performances by John Heard, Lindsay Crouse, Jill Eikenberry, Marilu Henner, Bruno Kirby, Joe Morton, and Jeff Goldblum as the paper’s music critic. (101 mins., DCP)

"Ahead of its time…essential 1970s cinema."
