Thanks to the pandemic—we’ll be getting a ton of pandemic film productions or pandemic-themed movies. With Stop and Go, it was one of the first films in its early conception during the pandemic that actually makes fun of the pandemic.
The film stars Whitney Call and Mallory Everton, who are best friends in real life and wrote the story together. It is the feature film directorial debut for Everton and Stephen Meek.
Here’s the synopsis:
Sisters Black and Jamie’s big plans for the year come to a screeching halt when they are forced to rescue their grandmother and her beloved dog from her nursing home before their reckless sister can get there first. They embark on a hilarious cross-country race against time while contending with a deranged dog breeder, a highly inappropriate 9-year-old, and a clueless Romeo, all in the name of family.
The film also stars Julia Jolley and Anne Sward Hansen.
