Stuck Together

Comedy


 

There's a viral pandemic and the residents of an apartment block in Paris are trying to adjust to novel ways of living.

"Stuck Together" gently mocks different reactions to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many aspects of lockdown life are visited - homeschooling, zoom court sessions, closed bars, the panic and bravado. The actors play out their roles without taking themselves too seriously and accurately convey the edginess of being thrown together with neighbours they barely know. Times were interesting and are painted funnier now with 20/20 hindsight, with a generous sprinkling of laugh-out-loud moments while also acknowledging stark reality. Too soon?
