Trivia

When Woody Allen first approached Philip Glass about doing the film's score, they had an initial meeting in which Glass played him a particularly ominous piece of music. Allen remarked that it was a very heavy section of music and that it would be perfect for establishing the dark mood of the film. Glass interjected with the fact that the music he'd just played was actually the love theme and he hadn't gotten round to writing anything ominous yet!
Colin Farrell said in an interview that he "think[s] [he] did as many takes for this whole film as I did for one scene in Miami Vice (2006)."

Originally this was scheduled to open in late 2007 to qualify for Academy Award consideration. After some indifferent previews however, it was given a January 2008 release, traditionally the dumping ground for bad films.
Sally Hawkins dyed her hair blonde for the film.
