Storyline

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

This is a must see!

Just saw Stuck at the Breckenridge Film Festival in Colorado and I have to say it's easily one of my new favorite movies. I was worried it was gonna be a little froofy cause it's a musical, but it wound up being powerful, emotional, and hysterical. It never bothered me that they broke into song. The music was incredible, a blend of a whole bunch of styles so that each of the main characters had a unique voice. It was a simple enough premise- six strangers stuck on a NYC subway- but I feel like I really got to know these characters and can't stop thinking about what's gonna happen to them now. Though I related to just about everyone in the film, even if you don't, the story is so universal you're bound to identify with one of the characters. I'm never gonna look at a stranger the same way again.
