FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOS ANGELES – After a successful festival run which included a World Premiere at the Oscar-qualifying HollyShorts Film Festival and festival prize for Best Romantic Comedy at the Discover Film Awards, STUCK, a short film by writer/director Corey Shurge, is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video (US/UK) and can also be watched for free worldwide on short film curators Short Of The Week and Discover.film.
Stuck follows a young couple who, during a night of kinky sex, realize they have different ideas about where their relationship is headed. When a sex toy mishap lands them in the emergency room, they must confront their issues surrounding love and relationships. The film features talked-about performances by Kristopher Turner (This Life, Falling Water, Saving Hope) and breakout star Ruth Goodwin (Private Eyes, Workin’ Moms).
Having originally worked together on the feature film The Triumph Of Dingus McGraw: Village Idiot, Shurge and Turner were ready to make their next collaboration happen themselves. “We just wanted to make something, rather than wait for something to get made, as is so often our experience working in television,” says Shurge, writer of internationally acclaimed TV series such as Republic Of Doyle, American Lawmen, and Mayday. “When I wrote this self-financed passion project, the goal was simply to make something honest. A snapshot of a relatable turning point in relationships.”
Stuck is produced by FILMCOOP INC. in association with AIR LIGHT TIME & SPACE PRODUCTIONS. Prime Video subscribers can watch the film for free, and non-subscribers can purchase the title for $2.99. The film is available for free at ShortOfTheWeek.com and Discover.film.
