Hurricane Isabelle hit Middlesex Virginia two days after shooting, leaving the cast and crew with no power or running water for three weeks. During that time most of the exteriors were shot during the day in close-ups to avoid seeing the damage from the hurricane. At night the cast would rehearse under candle light. The camera batteries were charged through a car lighter converter. The original actress to play Paige was replaced a week before filming with the Director's sister, Alexis Katherine. See more »
Living not too far from Middlesex, in a similar small town, this movie was very memorable for me. The general hopelessness and lack of ambition displayed by most of the characters is eerily reminiscent of many of my own friends growing up in a small southern town. This movie shows viewers, with humour, crudeness, and surprising honesty - how easy it is to slip into a dark, dangerous world, even when you live in a "safe place." Big Fish in Middlesex is not necessarily the sort of film you will watch again and again. Rather, it is a film that you will watch once and never forget. If you live in a small town, you may see a glimpse of yourself in the movie. Hopefully, however, you'll see what might have been if you hadn't escaped that vicious cycle.
