Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The first scenes shot for the film were the most intense, according to Felix van Groeningen, and involved Timothée Chalamet's character being hospitalized for a drug-overdose. Chalamet was instructed to lose weight a couple weeks before the filming of the "hospitalization scenes," and subsequently rested to recover in order to complete the rest of the shoot. Chalamet has stated that there were numerous "doctor visits" and "close calls" during the shoot, saying "Your mind knows you're acting. But when you drop twenty pounds and you are under a rain machine for eight takes in a T-shirt, your body doesn't know you're acting." See more »
