Thanks to an IONCINEMA.com reader, we’ve got your first glimpse into the look and feel for Stuck Between Stations – a low budget romantic drama by Brady Kiernan (see below), a first time helmer we featured in our American New Wave 25 series. Co-written by Sam Rosen and Nat Bennett, Rosen also shares the bulk of the film’s screen time with Indie Queen Zoe Lister-Jones (both co-starred on Breaking Upwards). The film also sees Josh Hartnett in a small role – which should ultimately make it easier for the project to make the rounds. Much like how one might describe Linklater’s Before Sunrise, this is the story of two people spending one night together. I think in early 2011, we’ll find a little bit of Minneapolis in Park City.
Casper (Sam Rosen), a soldier who experienced the horrors of war, fell in love with Rebecca (Zoe Lister-Jones), a once-promising grad student who just killed her career. Although they have known each other since elementary school, the two soon reconnect. They spend a night in the underbelly of Minneapolis talk through their hopes and dreams, and maybe becoming closer to one another.
Here are screen caps of Rosen and Lister-Jones.
