I found this to be an incredibly (as I said in the title) "realistic, honest and riveting" movie. I really wasn't expecting much at all when I started watching it. I figured just another ho-hum independent movie. It was much more.
The main actor and actress, Sam Rosen and Zoe Lister-Jones, were absolutely phenomenal. They WERE their characters. I never felt as though they were acting. In addition, the scenes and the shots were incredibly realistic. For these reasons, during the whole movie, I felt as though I was actually in the movie - with the characters. I was participating in their adventure. I virtually never experience that when watching a film, and it was a very refreshing experience.
The movie also made intriguing use of split screen - not often, but just enough to make it appropriate.
I think the young director, Brady Kiernan, has a bright future ahead of him if he can stay true to the integrity and creativity that he brought to this movie.
In sum, DEFINITELY worth watching if you are a fan of unique, independent movies.
Brilliantly shot by first timer Brady Kiernan, this low-budget romp around night-time Minneapolis shows a chaotic party-filled night as Casper bumps into old friends, the anarchist bike-gang leader Paddy (Josh Hartnett - Lucky Number Slevin) among them. Rosen & Lister Jones carry the entirety of this film however, any other characters are merely bit-parters revealing something about the protagonist's past. Resultantly by the end of the 85 minute duration I felt that I knew both Casper & Rebecca like friends and genuinely wanted them to get together, their chemistry is palpable. Rosen plays the lovable but ultimately directionless soldier well, whilst Lister Jones provides a beautifully-fractured character.
Extra Content: A commentary with the filmmakers that includes Director Brady Kiernan, Co-Writer Nat Bennett, Co-Writer and Actor Sam Rosen, Editor Sam Heyn and Producers Todd Cobery and Spencer Kiernan, and a "Minnesota Originals: Behind-the scenes of Stuck Between Stations" featurette.
All in all, this is an romantic Indie film that feels ridiculously real. Definitely worthy of your time.
Here's the scoop. It's Casper's (Sam Rosen) last night in town before he heads back to the base and back to Afghanistan. He runs into Rebecca (Zoe Lister Jones) at a bar. They remember each other from grade school and proceed to strike up a conversation which leads to this that and the other thing. As dawn approaches the two have come to some conclusions about themselves and each other.
I liked this movie because I liked the two main characters. They have good hearts but they're flawed. He has some father issues and feels a bit guilty because the war hasn't screwed him up as it has many of those he served with. She's bright and on her way to a masters degree (PHD?) but pulled a big boner that might derail that. He's had a thing for her since grades school. She remembers him but doesn't share the same "thing" he has for her. hey have a string of good conversations as their inner selves come to the surface.
There is some nice use of split screen. It's more subtle than I've seen in other movies. I also liked the music score. It has a dreamy, ethereal quality to it. I probably couldn't listen to it by itself but it works well here.It was shot well. Not at all flashy but of a level as to eliminate the sense I was watching actors on a set. Josh Hartnett and Michael Imperioli hold their own in small roles.
The conversations between Casper and Rebecca might be a bit too clever and "now." It will be interesting to see how well this views ten years from now, but I liked it. They were both insightful. But the performances of both were good.
This is Brady Kiernan's first outing as director. I hope to see him at the helm again. He's done a nice job here. If good indy films are your poison, you could do much worse. Have at it.

This movie is quite boring. Seems to have too many loose ends in character development, and the interaction between them is too forced.Published 21 months ago by Kevin
Couldn't get through the first 15 minutes. I don't think it's because i am older and the characters are younger, but because it seems like a weak piece of work on eery level,... Read morePublished 23 months ago by Frank Wolkenberg
