Raindance Unveils Full Lineup, Including Closing Film ‘Stuck’ (Exclusive)

The New York-set musical movie “Stuck” will have its international premiere at the Raindance Film Festival, which announced its full 2017 lineup Thursday. As the London-based festival’s closing film, “Stuck” follows a group of strangers who are stranded on a New York subway train together and who reveal their true selves through song and pop music. Directed by Michael Berry, it stars Giancarlo Esposito (“Okja”) and Oscar nominee Amy Madigan.

This year’s edition of Raindance features 200 films, shorts, Vr projects, and music videos, including Zachary Cotler and Magdalena Zyzak’s feature debut, “Maya Dardel,” starring Lena Olin and Rosanna Arquette; Tony Gatlif’s “Djam”; and Japanese film “Mukoku,” all of which are in competition. Other titles competing for awards include Jason Wingard’s directional debut, “In Another Life,” which is set against the backdrop of the “Jungle” refugee camp in Calais, France, and has its international premiere at Raindance.
