Stuck in Love tells the story of a family struggling to cope with divorce. Three years ago Erica (Jennifer Connely) left her husband Bill (Greg Kinnear) for a younger man, leaving scars that her family has yet to overcome. Bill, an acclaimed novelist, still pines for Erica day and night. He obsesses about her constantly, spies on her when he should be working, and sets a place for her at the table every Thanksgiving.
Their children have taken the divorce pretty hard as well. Deeply wounded by her mother’s perceived abandonment, 19-year-old Samantha (Lily Collins) has built a wall between herself and love. She pursues only brief hookups and one-night stands, even when a classmate for whom she has developed feelings tries to start a relationship. Her 16-year-old brother Rusty (Nat Wolff) has become the exact opposite: needy, clingy, and eager to throw himself into love. He gets his chance when he saves his crush Kate (Liana Liberato) from an abusive boyfriend, but he’s so blinded by love that he fails to see how troubled Kate really is.
When Samantha comes home from college with news that she has published her first novel, she inadvertently reopens old wounds and sparks new drama. As the family tries desperately to come to terms with their problems, Kate begins to spin out of control—and it will take the family’s combined efforts to help her.
