The film heavily features the music of Melissa Manchester, as Clarke (Jeremy Dozier) is a big fan. The song "Rainbird" was actually co-written by Manchester and Mary Steenburgen, who plays Clarke's mother. See more »
After Danielle pulls away from Clarke and he hits his nose, making it bleed, she goes to get him a tissue. When she hands him one, you can read the logo "Puffs" on the bottom of the box. "Puffs" were not available until 1988. See more »
Juno Temple is brilliant. She gave the first sings of awesome in "Cracks" (which is another great film) and she is showing something rather different in this one yet she is awesome again. Versatile actress in the making, i am telling you. Jeremy Dozier is new to me but he seems to be a great choice either.
The plot might seem like a typical road story with people trying to find their places in life, but this time, the characters are not your typical buddies. This time it is dirty :) But still lovely and joyful. Sometimes happy, sometimes sad. But "truthful". Lifelike.
If you respect every way of life, just for the sake of life itself, you will love this film. It will warm your heart. Trust me.
