Alessandro Nivola missed the reference to his character singing a hymn when he read the script, and was unaware that he had to do so until a few days before his "singing scene" was scheduled to shoot. He only had a few days to rehearse, and his singing in the scene is recorded live, as the budget did not allow for it to be recorded on a sound stage. See more »

What a wonderful, beautiful, funny and touching movie! Being FROM North Carolina, I found this movie to be a sincere and poetic depiction of deep South culture. Many who view this movie will walk away with differing and varying views of the underlying story. Yet at its core Junebug is a simple look at two different cultures, how they collide and then after a period of understanding and self-realization, there is so much to learn about each other, (and their significant others)! I highly recommend this movie to all who have the opportunity to see it! As an aside, the writing and casting was perfect matched, but it all came together with the skillful direction of Mr. Morrison...shall I say Oscar? I for one can not wait for his next film.
