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

Lifelines is thought provoking and interesting
23 January 2009 | by jennie-105See all my reviews

I managed to get a sneak peak of this film, it is by far the last film I have seen in the last 18th months. I'm a massive film buff and it was fantastic to see a film covered in gritty realism. I'm bored of Hollywood and their happily ever after perfect lives. This film is interesting and really captures the audience. It held my attention from start to finish, pulling me into the characters reality. It made me feel the families pains and made me re-evaluate what is happening in my own life whilst making me feel good that my life wasn't quite this much of a mess! It is extremely well written and shot. The cast play the roles fabulously, with an especially notable performance from Jane Adams. Fantastic! 10 out of 10!
