Trivia

The plot of this film bears some broad resemblance to "The World, The Flesh and The Devil (1959)". In that film, Harry Belafonte plays a miner in Pennsylvania who makes his way to Manhattan. Inger Stevens plays the comparable "Ann" role and Mel Ferrer plays the other man. Thus, the John and Caleb roles are somewhat reversed, but the racial, sexual and age difference factors are similarly very much in play. See more »

Goofs

Ann uses a Celsius thermometer, despite all of the references to the film taking place in the United States. Fahrenheit thermometers are ubiquitous in the States, Celsius thermometers are much more common in New Zealand where the film was made. See more »

Strong, ambitious work
4 January 2016 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

I was a big fan of Margot Robbie's work in The Wolf of Wall Street. I thought it was a fun, charismatic, electric turn, but I wasn't necessarily sure if that meant that she was an actual, capable dramatic actress. This really proves that she's one to watch out for. Although all three performers deliver some strong work, it's her moving, resonant performance that really stuck with me. I kept hearing a lot of negativity towards this film's ending and so I was sure it would be something out of left field, some turn or twist or something. It wasn't really any of that, and I actually loved the ending. It was semi-ambiguous, although not really, and the last scene was just pure magic and worked to conclude the film, beautifully. Definitely a very underrated, underseen film that I wish I had heard about before.
