A Little Stiff is an engaging independent American romantic comedy with a new spin on the classic love triangle - and the story is re-enacted by the actual true-life participants! Film student Caveh's unrequited love for art student Erin begins in an elevator and goes up and down from there...
The droll indie romantic A Little Stiff, which is anything but. This Sundance Grand Jury Prize nominee (from way back when in 1991) "has wit, snap and a horribly clear understanding of paralyzing angst," wrote Janet Maslin in The New York Times. "Unfolds in a deadpan black-and-white style that is humorously... loaded with the baggage of the directors' film school education"... "charming and delightful independent feature...beats what most commercial movies do with young romance hands down," wrote Jonathan Rosenbaum in the Chicago Reader. "Neither excessive nor undernourished, as its industry counterparts are prone to be, it strikes a happy balance. These filmmakers seem to know precisely what they're doing every step of the way."
