Goofs

I'm not sure if this counts, but at one point, Cara is signing a letter to send to the author and putting it in a priority mail envelope. She then folds the edge over to seal it, but she never removed the protective strip, so it wouldn't have stuck. See more »

from the director of the film
8 July 2005 | by (New Haven, CT) – See all my reviews

Just to set the record straight, Francoise Surel is the wife of producer Arthur Chang. She was on board the project from the get-go.

And while I truly appreciate some of the kind comments about the film, please know that I had nothing to do with the final version of the film. It was completely recut to focus on Ms. Surel. Likewise, the music was changed. I'm not at all fond of this final cut. And to say that I dislike the music is an understatement. And please know that the voice overs from the novel were written by other writers, not myself or Mr. Manzi.

While some of the better moments survived this cut (it's hard to make Eliza and Terence look bad), many unfortunately have not.

But nonetheless, thank you for watching, Gorman Bechard.
