Between the Lines Movie Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Between the Lines

This is the story of an underground newspaper (think of Rolling Stone in its early days) on the brink of closing. The staff, mostly 20-something idealists, do what they can to keep the paper going, in between having arguments, bedding one another, and trying to outdo each other with a big scoop.

The ensemble cast is noteworthy, including Joe Morton, Stephen Collins, a pre-L.A. Law Jill Eikenberry, and pre-Godfather II Bruno Kirby. Jeff Goldblum plays the perpetually stoned music critic.
