Trivia In the early bar scene where Joseph is sitting alone talking to himself, the voice off screen saying, "Are you all right, Joseph?" belongs to director Paddy Considine, who said he was so taken in by Peter Mullan's performance that the question was totally spontaneous. See more »

Quotes Hannah: Why Tyrannosaur?
Joseph: What?
Hannah: You said something about your wife Tyrannosaurus or something?
Joseph: What's Tyrannosaurus about? Yeah
[nods head]
Joseph: It was a joke name... In Jurassic Park you know the movie, there's a scene where the kids are scared, they're looking out the glass and they hear the Tyrannosaur coming. As it thumps its way towards them
[thump, thump, thump]
Joseph: the glass starts to ripple... So
[sighs]
Joseph: my wife was a big lady, and you'd hear her going up the stairs and it was like
[thump, thump, thump]
Joseph: I swear if I had a cup of tea on the sideboard you'd see the same ripples in my tea. So I called her the Tyrannosaur.
[bows head and looks away]
Joseph: I was being a cunt.
