Trivia

Second film to be directed by Marc Webb being released in 2017. First was Gifted (2017) in April. See more »

Goofs

The letter sent to Thomas by the Penguin Group at the end of the film has a typo in it: where it reads 'I with you every success with your book...' should actually be 'I wish you every success with your book'? Didn't expect that from the 'Penguin Group'. See more »

Quotes

Ethan Webb: I want you to move from the lower east side. Why do you insist on living in the farthest corner away from us. I think it's intentional. I think it's almost hurtful.

Masterpiece
27 August 2017 | by StewballSee all my reviews

This is a movie that hits many of the same notes and soul-chords as "Like Sunday, Like Rain"--character, plot and dialogue driven low budget Indies, both well cast (Yes even Pierce Brosnan), but with no obligatory high octane action scenes, both inexplicably rated R, with low ratings (besides a few like mine),and all leading to a low box office. I especially like Jeff Bridges on screen character and voice over narration. Of all the outstanding scenes, the initial confrontation between Kate Beckinsale and Callum Turner's characters is exquisite. This is the second of Marc Webb's movies I've rated 10/10 (besides "500 Days of Summer") and is only the 18th film (out of 8000+ I've seen) that I've rated at that pinnacle. He also released "Gifted" this year, which I thought was an 8. But in between then and now, he did two high budget, low class superhero movies which I'll leave unmentioned. (You can look them up yourself if you really need to know. Think 8-legged arthropod.) Disclaimer: for those who may be thinking I'm anti-action, one of my two most favorite 10s is "The Accountant", with which you can list these other 10s, "The Counselor, Gladiator, Inception, Undisputed and Zero Dark Thirty". Maybe not your particular cup-o-action, but u c what'm sayin'.
