Trivia

To prepare for her role, Nicole Kidman visited women's shelters and talked to former victims of abuse for inspiration.
The mole on the side of Anthony Hopkins' head was added, due to the fact that Wentworth Miller has a mole on the side of his head. Hopkins also wore green contacts to match the color of Miller's eyes.
According to Wentworth Miller, the casting agent did not believe that he was part-African American like the character Coleman Silk. Miller also told the casting agent about an incident at Princeton University. While he was a student there, he published an editorial cartoon in the campus newspaper that was misconstrued as a racial slur against Professor Cornel West. Silk has a similar situation in the film. Miller faxed family pictures and articles about the controversy to prove his story. West later attended the film's premiere and made up with Miller.
The racist white man on the train who berates the porter is played by Allison Davis, a Chicago attorney who is black.
Feature film debut for Wentworth Miller. The star of this film, Nicole Kidman, would later star in Miller's debut as a screenwriter, Stoker (2013).
