Trivia

In the wedding scene, someone places an ottoman in front of Hervé (Peter Dinklage) so that he can step up to kiss his bride. This is a direct reversal of what happens to Dinklage in the Game of Thrones episode "Second Sons", in which Joffrey removes a stepladder from the altar just before the marital vows, to humiliate him by making it impossible for him to kiss his bride.

Excellent! See this one...
23 October 2018 | by rhmaclSee all my reviews

I got sucked right into this flick on HBO; the era (my teens), the music, the reconstruction of timeless scenes and TV personalities were spot on. But Mr. Dinklage is excellent, surpassing expectations and delivering a huge gift to the entertainment universe. The story was well-told by framing a range of 'out-of-control' personal worlds, while harvesting gut wrenching observations about being alive, being a person, being flawed, being human. Dinklage bravely fills-in that void between "you" and "him" with honesty, authenticity and structure. Great performance. It changed me...honestly! I feel like a better person... wow.
