A New York City subway train stops in the tunnel beneath the city with six complete strangers stuck inside the rear car. The strangers are a cross section of New Yorkers, of different race, culture and age. The emotions of the trapped, frustrated strangers explode, as the subway car becomes a kind of magical, musical, conduit cell. A place where strangers reveal through song more of themselves than any of them ever could have imagined. Written by anonymous

Sue's son's name was originally John in the stage version but his name was changed for the film to Christopher because that's the street and subway stop that Sue gets off at and lives on. See more »

User Reviews

Stuck is a fine musical about disparate characters on a subway train singing about their troubles
23 April 2018 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just watched this at the Louisiana International Film Festival & Mentorship Program at my local Baton Rouge Cinemark theatre. It was the last film presented there. Giancarlo Esposito and Amy Madigan are among the players stuck on a stalled subway car. There's at least four more in this same car-two male and two female-sharing their frustrations in song. This was quite an eye-opener concerning different people of different races and classes. I highly enjoyed this as well as a short that preceded it called Spell. I also enjoyed a documentary about the Louisiana flood of 2016 called 1000 Year Flood about something I personally experienced during that period. So on that note, I highly recommend Stuck and those other films I mentioned.
