Ben Affleck's character of "Gunner" was inspired by the life of Ted Steeg who also appears in the movie as the Minister. Dan Wakefield, the film's screenwriter (and author of the adapted novel) also appears briefly in the film (s Farmer #2) Wakefield and Steeg were friends in Indiana who later roomed together in New York City's Greenwich Village. Wakefield chronicles this halcyon period in his book, "New York in the Fifties", which was also made into a documentary in 2001. See more »
Although set in the early 1950s, just after the Korean War, the U.S. flags in the movie have 50 stars at a time when the United States had only 48 states. In addition, the large U.S. flag displayed against the wall at the dance was backward, with the field of stars on the flag's own left. See more »
Going All the Way is a great film, well, at least it was for me. For anyone who is aware of the sexual repression and confusion that can come from parents and religion should see this film. It moves slow at times, but this is more of an artistic film than a comedy so that is understandable. The underlying themes of escaping what you realize has been holding you back, searching for a point in life, and questioning one's beliefs makes this film an immidiate favorite of mine. If you're looking for a movie with typical Ben Affleck, see Dogma. If you're searching for something with some depth that is up for some interpretation, see Going All the Way.
Additionally, if you have seen this already and enjoyed it, I also reccomend The Virgin Suicides.
