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 »
Watching Clea DuVall and Melissa Painter talk about how much time and effort it's taken to get this story onto the screen, and having seen the result, it's hard to believe that nobody will see this film.
Painter shoots around the Bay Area with beautiful results, and cuts the scenes together in a way charming to anyone who liked The Limey or The Thin Red Line. With only 22 days of shooting and no rehearsal with the few other characters, DuVall shoulders the film and carries it brilliantly. If nothing else, this film will serve as a strong calling card for both of its principals. They'll both be heard from again and again.
