Did You Know?


While shooting the driving scenes between Ed and Ganny, director Tom Huckabee would lay on the floor of the back seat of the station wagon. The sound recordist would lay in the cargo back of the vehicle and the car would follow a lead car containing the Director of Photography and Assistant Director. Huckabee, prone to falling asleep in a moving vehicle, would regularly fall asleep during takes and the actors would continue ad-libbing before the sound recordist or AD called cut and woke Huckabee up.

Really Funny-Great All Around
13 July 2010 | by pixelvisionSee all my reviews

I really loved this film. I saw it at a film fest and thought it was what I thought The Savages was going to be - but was not!!...and The Savages was nominated for an Oscar(and it think won)! But back to Carried Away - It was definitely a LOL movie (laugh out loud for any grannies out there) and made me feel like I am not alone in my thoughts about my own grandmother. This is what I love about independent films and so much better than Hollywood studio junk. I've read a little bit about the director and the making of the film which made me like it even more.

I think Carried Away's good for a Church Group film night, a College Film Society Night or date night at home. I would watch it again for sure!
