Watch It Now
A pleasant, inconsequential indie with deep Minneapolis roots, "Stuck Between Stations" should please youth-oriented Minnesota audiences. It's unlikely to set the rest of the planet on fire.
There are no easy payoffs in "Stuck Between Stations," but the chemistry of its stars is reward enough.
There's an overapplication of split-screen and woozy soundtrack cues to this end, but Lister Jones and Rosen do an appealing back-and-forth with lively dialogue, not dulled in the interest of realism.
Real people may not be this glib and witty, but Rosen and Lister-Jones sell us on Casper and Becky nonetheless.
The end result is a well-intentioned yet terminally underwhelming indie that maintains a nigh passable feel virtually from start to finish...
The movie has a meandery structure and the gimmicky split-screen technique used to distract us from the familiar goings-on doesn't get the job done.
Brady Kiernan's Stuck Between Stations has sweetness to it, but it's a sweetness borrowed from innumerable other films and constantly corrupted by biased politics and crass emotional digressions.
