Sean O'Connell's camera has its Nikon logo blacked out. The movie's producers may not have had Nikon's permission to use their name. However, many real-life professional photographers cover their cameras logos to avoid questions from lay photographers, or to avoid advertising their gear choices. See more »
The fishing vessel crewmen show Walter a wildly inaccurate map. It shows the Eyjafjallajökull volcano nestled deep in a fjord in what appears to be the Westfjords region in the northwest corner of the island. Eyjafjallajökull is located on the coastline in the Southern Region. See more »
I saw this movie on a special sneak preview event. I admit being utterly mesmerized by some of the trailers. I did really enjoy the film. It has a nice message and is definitely a feel good movie. There is nothing wrong with that. For me, this is the most beautifully looking film I've seen this year. The cinematography and camera shots were fantastic - right up there with Life of Pi and Gravity. It's definitely worth seeing on the big screen. I personally enjoyed Ben Stiller in a more serious role. The film has comedic elements but everything is a bit more subtle and reflective of a man trying to find his inner courage and voice.
