Barring the two establishing shots, the entirety of the scene at "Coffee and Pie, Oh My!" was actually shot somewhere behind the San Clemente High School, the same school that was used in much of the film. This change of shooting location occurred because the owners of "Coffee and Pie" initially didn't realize that the crew would take up parking spaces when shooting dolly shots for the scene.

The piece of paper that falls out of Brendan's locker has a spelling error on it, it should be "Sarmentoso", and not "Sarmentosa". This can bee seen very clearly when the camera cuts from the piece of paper to the street sign that has the correct spelling. See more »
This is an EXCELLENT and delightfully surprising movie. Its style is refreshing, its dialoque fascinating, the performances powerful, and the story is both energetic and fun. I just caught this movie at the sundance film festival and can't help hoping that A LOT more people get to see it. The amazing attention to detail by Rian Johnson (the writer/director) and the incredible performances by Haas, Zehetner, and especially Joseph Gordon-Levitt marks this very commendable film. I remember sitting in the theater before the film started, completely disappointed by the last two films I had seen the night before. I truly wasn't expecting to be wowed or even awake, but from the very first scene I had to keep "my specs peeled". We just don't get to experience the feel of this movie anymore. I highly recommend it once it's out.
