Trivia

Author Ethan Canin's original short story "Batorsag & Szerelem", which this movie is based on, originally took place in Iowa. When director Chad Lowe became interested in the project, and plans were made to film a movie based on the story, the action of "Batorsag & Szerelem" was moved to Shaker Heights, Ohio, which is a suburb of Cleveland.

Goofs

In the scene where the father and two sons are playing hockey on their backyard rink, all three are wearing skates with white molded "Tuuk-style" blade holders. These were not seen on skates until 1979, and even then were available in black only. White blade holders did not appear until c. 1982. In 1973, the year in which the scene was set, blade holders would have been the steel tube style. See more »

Beautiful Ohio, Beautiful Movie
28 October 2006 | by bintensernSee all my reviews

This was a wonderful Movie. I saw the preview the preview in a special fund raiser in Cleveland for the Arts. I Can't wait till it is in wide distribution so that I can see it again. Chad Lowe the director and producer has brought humor, meaning, emotion, and depth to flaming. The actors are superb. William Hurt and Rita Wilson are excellent and make this movie time well spent. Julianne Marguilies is surprisingly charming in this role. The new actors are very good and I know they will have an excellent future. It was an emotional and compelling movie that kept me enthralled from the moment it started to the surprising end.
