Trivia

The director's relationship to the subject matter in this film is very similar to Almost Famous (2000). In that film, Cameron Crowe tells the story of how he went on the road with a rock band to do a story for Rolling Stone magazine. In this film, Sacha Gervasi tells the story of his night with actor Hervé Villechaize, also for a magazine story. In both films, the protagonist is a semi-fictionalized surrogate for the filmmaker; the character has a different name, but it's essentially autobiographical. See more »

Camille did "Fantasy Island" after she married Hervé, not before; in the two episodes she was in, she is credited as Camille Villechaize. See more »

It's well worth a watch

Dinklage is the man. He plays lecherous alcoholics like no other.

I remember when Herve committed suicide. Reasonably big news. Likely he's unknown by the youth of today.

Fantasy Island was rubbish, BTW.
