Trivia

The film was originally going to be a Scott Free Productions project, when it was acquired in 2008. Joe Russo was to direct, Ridley Scott and Tony Scott were to be the executive producers, Michael Costigan was to be the producer and Jim Sturgess was to play Sidney Hall. Pre-production halted in 2009, however, and no development took place until the writer, Shawn Christensen, looked to take the project under his wing in late 2014. See more »

Goofs

When Sidney is laying in his front yard, he has his hands behind his head. But when Brett walks up he removes his right and lays it on his chest. But in the next camera shot, both hands are behind his head again. See more »

Unexpectedly BEAUTIFUL
24 April 2017 | by karenmsoto-32140See all my reviews

I knew nothing about this film prior to watching it at Sundance for its premiere. I never have high expectations for movies, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found myself laughing within minutes of the film starting. I have a short attention span and the only thing I watched this year that kept my attention and made me concentrate was The People v. O.J. Simpson, American Crime Story.

What I loved most about this film is that it isn't predictable, you had to piece the series of events together as the storyline evolved. I felt a roller coaster of emotions and towards the end found myself in tears.

Definitely worth seeing and I look forward to watching it again.
