Trivia

The Choir of the boarding school used in the transition scenes that Wood's character belonged to was Maryland's Official Boy Choir, The Maryland State Boychoir. Wood and other cast members were fitted for robes to match the already established actual robes of the choir rather than make and redress an entire choir of extras. See more »
