The main character is named "Pip" in Charles Dickens' novel. But it was felt that the name would sound strange in modern times. The character was named "Finn" after Ethan Hawke's dog. See more »
During the beginning sequence where the young Finn is splashing through the shallow water, drawing in his notebook, you can see indentations in the page indicating where the creatures eye is to be drawn See more »
I did it! I did it! I am a wild success! I sold 'em all, all my paintings. You don't have to be embarrassed by me anymore. I'm rich! Isn't that what you wanted? Aren't we happy now? Don't you understand that everything I do, I do it for you? Anything that might be special in me, is you.

The credits are accompanied by images of all the artwork drawn by Finnegan Bell (Ethan Hawke). They run the entire duration of credits. See more »
The first time I saw this movie, I didn't think it was that good. But when I saw it again, I definitely liked it. I never liked Paltrow that much, but I think Ethan Hawke did a good job. The location and Set Design are excellent as well as the Art Direction. I really like the 'Green' look in the movie. Every scene has something green in it, clothes or a bottle label - something or the other. The music is excellent too.
