When the characters Michael, Laura and Neal travel to Philadelphia, they are seen walking to the train tracks in Grand Central. However, if you actually wanted to travel to Philadelphia, you would have to go to Penn Station. The characters are seen on a Metro North Train. Metro North Trains only travel from Grand Central and go to Upstate New York and Connecticut. When Michael travels back to New York alone, he is seen on a Metro North Train, again. When the characters are seen exiting the train into "Philadelphia", they are still in Grand Central Station. See more »
A married couple stays apart for a night and love issues come in the way
I enjoyed this movie because it shows real life.There are many difficulties and temptations in a relationship, especially a marriage and that could be a start for someone to watch it.Sometimes it's good to get an idea of what really is going on in reality.We are so used to see a happy end and foolish problems and many may not appreciate the plot .I believe though that the end is a little poor, but maybe on the other hand it lets the viewer decide what would he do in the circumstance that was presented, because the characters can relate to every common man or woman.I also liked very much the chemistry of Knightley and Canet, but in my opinion Worthington and Mendes were not really the best choices, not that their act wasn't good, it just did not hit the eye. I also loved the location!
