Storyline

A day that starts like any other turns out to be one family's bitterly hilarious, ultimately painful, day-long journey of self-realization. "Lifelines" chronicles the hapless Bernstein family - Ira, Nancy, Michael, Meghan and Spencer, as they try to catch up to the life they are living... Exploring flawed characters, never allowing any excuses for their ugly behavior beyond their basic humanity, the story reflects the realistic experience of pausing long enough in your typical autopilot day to create the necessary time for truth to emerge. Written by Rob Margolies

Unique, thought provoking and interesting
21 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this film to be an intense and revealing portrayal of American family life.

Its dark comedy is subtle at times yet very accessible to a wide ranging audience.

It is brutally honest and thought provoking,making you review your own life.

Finding out the film was shot in only 11days is surprising due to the quality of the result.

The cast are brilliantly selected and work well as on an screen family.

This independent film is definitely a diamond in the rough, one that needs to be sought and enjoyed to the very full.

Fantastic.
