Absolute Josh Hartnett

The premiere fan-managed social network for Josh! Founded December 26, 1998


Stuck Between Stations, featuring a cameo from Josh Hartnett, will world premiere on April 22, 2011 at the 10th Tribecca Film Festival, New York, USA. Additionally the film will be screening on April 25th and April 28th, 2011.

Stuck Between Stations is an authentic snapshot of a generational zeitgeist and tells a coming-of-age story for modern-day middle America about former high school classmates reunited by chance during a chaotic party-filled evening. A decade after they graduated from high school and went their separate ways, Casper, a soldier haunted by the horrors of war, and Rebecca, a whip-smart graduate student with a shaky future, reunite by chance and get to know each other over the course of an accidental tour of the little-known underbelly of Minneapolis. The evening's odyssey includes a bar fight, a house party, a punk-rock circus, a spontaneous burglary, a home Casper did not know he had, and a cast of strange characters, unexpected allies and disappointing friends.

The appeal of filmmaking…

I became a filmmaker because I love telling stories. Growing up, my brothers and I had a video camera and were constantly making the most ridiculous music videos and short films and having a blast in the process. I never thought of it as a something I could do as a job. It was just something that was a lot of fun. Once I entered the world of academia, I found that the classes in film were the easiest for me to stay engaged and get good grades in. I’ve always just loved the act of losing yourself in someone else’s story and delving into the depths of someone else’s character. Film is also wonderful because it is a collaborative medium, so I’m able to work creatively with some very talented people. That is endlessly rewarding. 

Why did you choose this project?

The script came to me from Sam Rosen, the co-writer and male lead in the film. We had worked together on a few other movies and I loved his work, so I got excited when he told me that he and his writing partner Nat Bennett had a script for a love story set in Minneapolis. Once I read the script, we moved pretty quickly into production. Everything happened really quickly.

Focusing on character…

This film is definitely about the two main characters and their relationship, so we knew we were really going to focus on the performances and not get too style heavy. The entire film takes place at night, so we knew we would have to keep things relatively simple in terms of our lighting and color schemes. The film is also very dialogue heavy, so we really put an emphasis on subtle movements of the camera. We tried to stay inventive with how we covered the scenes. Most important was building an intimacy between these two characters and between the characters and the audience, so we really tried not to do anything that would get in the way of that.

Any obstacles?

Fundraising is always the most difficult part. We were fortunate that we were able to get it done in a relatively short period of time, but it was by far the biggest hurdle. Everything else and everyone else was really pleasant. It was overall a wonderful experience.

Dealing with drunks…

Aside from two scenes at the beginning of the film, the entire story takes place in the city at night. Minneapolis is a wonderfully clean and peaceful city, but the drunks and freaks still come out at night. We had to break up a few domestic disputes that happened to take place next to set. We had to get a few drunks arrested. A cop ended up bringing a drunk back to set to have us identify him. He rolled up with his lights flashing, screeched to a halt and said “is this the asshole?” We got quite a kick out of that.

Up next…

Sam, Nat and I have started developing an indie crime story. My producers, Spencer and Todd, are both directors as well, so they have scripts that we’ll probably try to make. First and foremost, we want to get this film out into the world and make it a success. We’ll see where that takes us. Keep your fingers crossed for us.
