While inventing stories about people they see walking around, Edith says "she's just trying to consolidate her grief into 40 characters so that she can tweet her sadness to the world". Twitter's message limit is actually 140 characters. See more »
As George and Conrad are leaving, George opens the back door of the car, but in the next shot after Edith and Audrey drive away, he's getting into the front seat. (at about 1:33 in the movie...) See more »
I selected this movie largely because of how much I like Vera Farmiga. I've always considered her an actor that does not get the attention she deserves. I had seen Andy Garcia in a number of pictures, and although not his fault, his work always seemed one-dimensional. The gangster, the cad, etc. I was completely stunned by the chemistry and nuanced performances of the pair in a film that I consider one of the most delightful movie experiences of the last ten years. This picture stood out with a unique take on a mid-life romance that didn't pander to a false, popular conclusion, but rewarded the viewer with a thoughtful and adult ending. The acting by all the players was first rate; the writing and dialog was crisp and real; filming and direction were beautifully done. It was an excellent mix of humor, pathos, and it delivered a life message so subtly that close attention had to be paid. Thanks to all who made this picture. I love you Vera.
