Casper, a young soldier home on leave, has a chance run-in with his childhood crush, now a grad student coping with conflicts of her own. In one night, the two traverse a striking Minneapolis cityscape, growing closer but knowing they will inevitably have to part ways at dawn. Featuring standout performances by rising indie stars Zoe Lister-Jones (BREAKING UPWARDS), and Sam Rosen (FOUR BOXES), and supported by Josh Hartnett and Michael Imperioli ("The Sopranos"), STUCK BETWEEN STATIONSis a touching and authentic snapshot of a generational zeitgeist.
Breaking Upwards' follows a young, real-life New York couple in a fictional narrative loosely inspired by their open relationship. After four years together, the two have grown stifled. Desperate to escape their ennui, but fearful of life apart, they decide to intricately strategize their own break up. Based on an actual experiment in real-life devised by filmmakers and partners, Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones, the film interprets a year in their lives exploring alternatives to monogamy, and the madness that ensues. The couple inhabits a hyper-articulate, emotionally layered world where twenty-somethings are portrayed in a complex and thoughtful new light. An uncensored look at young love, lust, and the pangs of codependency, 'Breaking Upwards' follows its characters as they navigate each others' emotions across the city they love. It begs the question: is it ever possible to grow apart together?
Zoe Lister Jones talks about the criticism at the start of season and the success at end.
