The book of poems from which Sabine reads was actually written by Robert Hass, who plays the part of the poet. Later, when Cally is in the bookstore, both that book and his earlier volume of poems are seen on the shelf. See more »
When Cally first visits Sabine, she is carrying Sabine's diary and a white box of chocolates. Cally put the chocolates on the poet's bedside table as she introduces herself to him. She also returns Sabine's diary to her, and does not get it back again. However, later on in the film we see Cally standing outside the poet's house, and she is once again carrying Sabine's diary and the box of chocolates. See more »
The first--and only--accurate film about the '60s...and I've seen all of them
This is a beautiful film about real people spanning two generations -- that of the counterculture of the sixties, and the children they bore, and then reared or abandoned. There is a refreshing absence of sixties-bashing, stereotypical characters, phony hippie artifacts, false emotion, and all the other trappings of Indie or Hollywood films desperately searching for an audience. This is a novel on film. I'm grateful to the film-makers because I had despaired of ever seeing the lives we led ever portrayed realistically on film.
