Closing Night Film
The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival is proud to present a Minnesota sneak peak screening of Stuck Between Stations.
Official selection in the Tribeca Film Festival's Viewpoints category.
If the performances by this standout cast featuring Sam Rosen, Zoe Lister-Jones, Michael Imperioli and Josh Hartnett weren't so superb, it could easily be argued that the strikingly gorgeous Minneapolis skyline deserves top billing in this indie feature from first-time director Brady Kiernan.
Thanks to a chance encounter, two former high school classmates have one night to experience what could've been if Casper (Sam Rosen) never enlisted in the fight overseas (Zoe Lister Jones plays the other half of this unexpected romance). Initially agreeing to keep their emotions from overcomplicating their rendezvous, nothing about their night turns out as they planned it. The stars, skyscrapers and an uncertain future loom large over their journey through the unsympathetic, urban landscape.
Jones and Rosen's natural chemistry calls to mind another lovelorn pair in the Linklater festival favorite, Before The Sunrise. With a sense of ease and clarity that's usually reserved for those years removed from the period in question, Stuck Between Stations perfectly captures the here and now for an entire generation.
