STUCK BETWEEN STATIONS: CLOSING NIGHT FILM OF THE 2011 MINNEAPOLIS/St. PAUL INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

Stuck Between Stations will be screening as the closing night film of the 2011 Minneapolis/St. Paul International Film Festival on May 5, 2011.

If the performances by Josh Hartnett, Sam Rosen, Zoe Lister Jones and Michael Imperioli 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 has 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.


The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival is produced by The Film Society of Minneapolis-St. Paul (formerly Minnesota Film Arts). The Film Society also presents a diverse slate of international, independent and art-house films year-round on Screen 3 at the St. Anthony Main Theatres. The Film Society’s Executive Director, Susan Smoluchowski, announces expanded year-round programming including a number of mini-festivals, events and series every year. These include a geographically-focused festival series -Asian in 2010, Latin in 2011, African in 2012 - made possible with Legacy Amendment funding, a Sustainability Series beginning this February, a monthly Documenting America Series, programs in collaboration with the University of Minnesota and major arts institutions such as the Guthrie Theater and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and much more…

Around The World And Home: the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival

Thursday’s opening-night lineup includes a tent party and a trio of movies that all, in their way, should resonate with Minnesotans. The documentary Page One: A Year Inside The New York Times features former Twin Cities Reader editor David Carr, who’ll be attending; Trollhunter is aBlair Witch-esque mockumentary about a team of Norwegian monster-chasers; and then there’s the self-explanatory Score: A Hockey Musical. The closing-night film is equally Twin Citian: The romantic drama Stuck Between Stations stars locally born Josh Hartnett, was filmed in town, features a plethora of local bands, and even takes its title from a song by The Hold Steady.

The A.V. Club talked to festival programmers Ryan Oestreich and Jesse Bishop—who are part of a team led by venerable festival founder Al Milgrom and co-programmer Tim Grady—about this year’s films.

Pumping up the Minnesota in MSPIFF

The folks at the Minneapolis St Paul International Film Festival are now in the final stretch leading up to the opening of the 2011 edition, and there in their midst is long-time doc-maker Melody Gilbert.

Perhaps Gilbert's biggest prize will be kept for the end. The closing night screening is"Stuck Between Stations" which she saw as a rough cut in the last year. It was shot in Minneapolis and stars Sam Rosen, Zoe Lister-Jones, Michael Imperioli and Josh Hartnett.

The program synopsis describes it thus: 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.

Gilbert hoped to get director Brady Kiernan to premier the film at MSPIFF, but then it got accepted for the Tribeca Film Festival where it will get its world premier on April 22nd. The May 5th screening in Minneapolis is described as a 'sneak peak.' No doubt it will sell out fast.
