Writer David Benioff said in a BBC interview, "The first time I saw [Edward Norton] on set he pulled back his hair and showed me his widow's peak. In the book, Monty Brogan has a widow's peak, but I hadn't mentioned it in the script. But Edward so wanted to be in character that he wore a prosthetic widow's peak for the entire shoot." See more »
When Monty and Naturelle meet for the first time in the movie she's leaning forward to pet the dog, who's standing in front of her. In the next shot the dog is behind her back and Monty has to raise his hand holding a dog's leash over Naturelle's head to let her pass through. See more »
Honestly it's the best movie I've seen in my 25 years. I've seen it a dozen times now, and I love it more every time. The plot is perfect, the acting is perfect, the cinematography is perfect. The ending segment with Monty and his father is about the most powerful I've ever seen.
So many unforgettable scenes in the movie:
Frank & Monty at the club the last night
The "make me ugly" scene
Monty and his dad in the car
If you haven't seen it, go get it right now. You can't miss this one.
