Behind the scenes info
28 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I lived in Lago Vista, TX for ten years and knew the son of the writer of the book since they lived there.

During the movie there is a church scene where the camera pans on people sitting. A number of the extras in front of the camera are Glen Kurth the writer's son and other people who lived in Lago Vista.

Lago Vista is a small community in the Austin area.

Lago Vista is also known for being a getaway for some famous musicians like the Doobie Brothers.

It also has hosted pro golf tournaments and has known pros that have lived there as well.
