Edit
Trivia Nearly all of the actors in the film were non-professionals that had been hand-picked by David Gordon Green through random circumstances. The most interesting of these circumstances was how Green met with actor Donald Holden, who played George Richardson. Green has said that he met with Donald Holden on a beach near where he lived at the time and simply asked him to be in the film. See more »
Goofs George jumps into a pool to save a young boy from drowning. He swims very well. George has a condition from birth which makes it extremely dangerous for him to allow his head to get wet. He almost died once after being baptized in water. With this condition, it is highly unlikely for him to have learned to swim as well as he does. See more »

Quotes Vernon: I just wish I had my own tropical island, I wish... I wish I was... I could go to China, I wish I could go out of The States... I wish I had my own planet, I wish I... I wish there were 200 of me, man... I wish I could just sit around with computers and just brainstorm all day man. I wish I was born again... I wish I could get saved and get my life through Christ... then maybe he can forgive me for what I did... I wish there was just one belief... my belief.
