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

I personally fell in LOVE with this movie...
22 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I want to start by saying that for what this brilliant movie is trying to achieve, it is quite close to perfect in its own simplistic way. Few movies have ever achieved a slice-of-life quality that is touching, plus authentic and never dull! I was laughing at all the jokes and feeling all the right emotions that the director was trying to achieve. The acting is the standout by every member of the ensemble cast. If this ever gets a wide enough distribution deal I foresee it getting a lot of end-of-the-year awards for the acting. The script is extremely original, especially the dialogue and the character development. In closing, this is a standout piece of storytelling. Very memorable too!And at the same time I want to mention that I can't wait to see it again! Something about that Jane Adams and her sass! The rest of the cast too!
