Originally, a different song was meant to be featured in the bowling alley scene. The scene was choreographed with that song as basis. However, the artist wouldn't agree to give the rights for the song to be used in the film, so at the last minute, Shawn Christensen had to write and record a new one to be used as a replacement, while keeping up with the tempo of the scene.

Here's a list of appropriate places you're allowed to take me. If you take me somewhere that is not on the list there'll be hell to pay. Here's some money for you to spend on me and on me only. If you spend it on anything else - like drugs - there'll be hell to pay. You're not allowed in the apartment until you drop me off at ten-thirty.If I'm not back home by ten-thirty on the dot, there'll be hell to pay.
Well, I'm glad we got that out of the way. My name is Richard and I am your uncle.

Really like that short. Kind of feels like an amalgamation of movies I grew up with in the 90ties in a good way. There's a touch of Léon (1994) with that strange colliding of worlds between an adult and a sweet kid (even though she's does not want to become a junkie ;)), there's the bowling alley with musical intermission of The Big Lebowski (1998)and that composed song by Shawn Christensen himself somehow recalling the soundtrack of Drive. Add good acting and a good camera and that mix adds up to movie that has a good length but I still wanted to see more of.
I even tried to get hold of that "bowling alley song". I'm guessing it must be that "sophie so far" song composed and performed by Christensen. Please add this to iTunes. People would buy this for sure.
And congrats to winning the Oscar!
