Trivia

When Stephanie has her beeping egg, she and her family attend church. The pulpit is is decorated with red fabric, indicating that it was Pentecost Sunday, seven weeks after Easter, between May 10 an June 13 (depending on the year). Pentecost is the only Sunday in the liturgical calendar that uses red paraments (cloths used to decorate the church). Later, there is an ad for cars offering no payments until April 2005, so the movie likely occurs in 2004, making May 30 Pentecost Sunday. See more »

10 lines about "Stephanie Daley"
3 January 2008 | by TenLineReviewSee all my reviews

I had no idea what to expect from this film, and by the 10 minute mark it won me over.

Tilda Swinton and Amber Tamblyn both gave stellar performances.

The script was tight, and the back and forth between the Swinton and Tamblyn was spot-on perfect.

Tamblyn's big bathroom scene was gripping and intense - a great use of the absence of sound to really hammer a point home.

The cinematography left a little to be desired - the HD format still looks like video at times.

I can see why Swinton Exec. Produced this: It was a great vehicle for her and I now have a new found respect for her as an artist.

I am looking forward to Brougher's next film - hopefully she will get a wider release this time.

The editing of the film was eerily effective - I was never once lost or confused, yet I was constantly being moved around time and space.

The ending was very satisfying - I don't need to be spoon fed every little thing.

Concise, daring script + great performances = "Stephanie Daley"
