Sundance Short Film: ‘Stuck’ is a Relationship on the Brink of Death

We’re exploring Sundance’s past all week, so we’ve got the usual batch of stellar short films with a Sundance twist. It’s like being there without the snow boots or Harvey Weinstein ruining screenings on his cell phone.

Why Watch? In 2002, Jamie Babbit (But I’m a Cheerleader) screened her short film about an aging lesbian couple on their way to a bridge game and earned an honorable mention at Sundance. It’s easy to see why. With an acerbic, hilarious performance from Jeanette Miller as an elderly nag and a bizarre catalyst that spells doom for more than just the couple, it’s a kind of shock to the system that feels like Erma Bombeck by way of Chuck Palahniuk.

And, yes, it’s about the JELLO.

What will it cost? Only 7 minutes.
