Tales from the Underground
Subway Stories: Tales from the Underground is a 1997 Comedy Drama film released on 24th July; Jonathan Demme, Craig McKay, Bob Balaban, Ted Demme, Abel Ferrara, Julie Dash, Alison Maclean, Seth Zvi Rosenfeld, Patricia Benoit and Lucas Platt directed the film which stars Sam Rockwell, Peter Sarsgaard, and Lili Taylor.
The actual experiences of New York City subway riders are dramatized in a collection of 10 intriguing and very different vignettes. The tales showcase an ensemble of familiar faces, and range from stories of compassion and love to reflections on violence and loss. Among them: a disabled beggar quarrels with a woman and ruins her shoes with his wheelchair, provoking onlookers to wrath and pity; a skittish tourist proves to be her own worst enemy; a newlywed trysts with a mysterious sexpot; a commuter helplessly witnesses a suicide attempt; and, in the most affecting segment, a young woman grieves over her mother's imminent death.
