Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The character played by Bill Nighy holds guns with just a thumb and middle finger, with his index on the trigger. This unusual grip is because he suffers from Dupuytren's contracture, which means he can't straighten the ring and little fingers on each hand. See more »
Goofs When Victor is massaging Rose's feet, in the close ups you can tell that a hand double is used because all 5 fingers are straight; however, Bill Nighy has Dupuytren's contracture which means that the last two fingers on both hands are permanently pointing inwards. This is visible in the wide shots. See more »
