A teenage girl is raised underground by a kindly robot "Mother" -- designed to repopulate the earth following the extinction of mankind. But their unique bond is threatened when an inexplicable stranger arrives with alarming news.
The Ford Mustang that was given to the crooks wasn't the same model as the the car in Bullit. See more »
In dialogue, the bank robber asks for a getaway car, a "Mustang Boss 302, just like Steve McQueen's car from the movie Bullitt." However, although McQueen's car from "Bullitt" is a Mustang fastback, as depicted in "Stockholm," McQueen's car was actually a 1968 390 V8 Ford Mustang GT Fastback, not a Boss 302 Mustang (which the bank robber asked for, and was made in 1969 and 1970, but not in 1968, in time for "Bullitt"), nor was it a 1973 Mustang Fastback, the car that is brought to the bank by the police as a getaway car for the robbers.

There's something so amazing about a film that can keep you on your toes with it's fast-paced action and consistently funny antics as "Stockholm" does. Despite being a known true story of the origin of Stockholm Syndrome, the film was able to make me excited to see what happened next as it captivated me through well-written dialogue and incredible characterization of the few main characters. After watching this film and mediating on it for a while, I was struck by the fact that director Robert Budreau was able to perfectly capture the essence of the syndrome, even making me root for the captor, Lars Nystrom (Ethan Hawke), as the film progressed. I found it so interesting that the Budreau was able to do this with every detail, right down to the music. The music was easy to listen to being upbeat and chill, completely counteractive to the action on the screen but perfectly fitting to the character of Nystrom. The cinematography used in the film also helped develop this reaction as each scene was filmed to masterfully capture the emotion meant to be felt using dark versus light lighting and muted versus bright colors as they developed throughout the film, paralleling the unfolding character of Nystrom. This film was interesting and all in all wonderful to watch; I highly suggest you take the time to see it.
